Hi guys. I noticed today in my local PetsAtHome these PetsAtHome Dandelions . Now they are in the rabbit section. But was thinking, dandelions are dandilions are they not. So are they OK for my dragon. Just wanna see if anyone else has used them.

Rock on guys \m/

Hmm. Interesting. I was first going to say that beardies don't like processed food, but then I remembered that Fi often leaves her veg until it's completely dried up and then eats it! So perhaps they wouldn't mind dehydrated food?

There doesn't seem to be anything but dried leaves in there, so perhaps worth having a go? This time of year though there are fresh dandelions everywhere - or is that just my garden? :roll:

If you try them let us know how you get on!

Pick them in the garden and dry your own if he likes them.

just leave either in a very low oven or sunny windowsill

It wont do any harm to try. Its just dried leaves and flowers by the looks of it.

I used to grow my own Dandelions on a little pot

I got some of these by the way out of interest. He didn't touch them :lol: . He gave me a look as if to say "What the hell is this crap !!".
But, his live feeds are eating them by the hand full. Thats his hoppers and the Dubia I'm trying to breed. So not a total waste. 8)

Is it safe to pick the dandelion from Your garden thought it was a bad thing?? What do people think about the dried foods available in the pet shops.

Also can someone tell me how to gut load crickets successfully.

Thanks

As long as you haven't sprayed weed killer around and you wash well plants from the garden are OK. As for the dried pellet food from pet shops it usually turns out to be expensive cricket food as most dragons won't touch it. You can buy a dry mix for gut loading crix but I prefer to use a little bit of butternut pumpkin to provide the moisture and then grind up some wholegrain bread, a little rabbit pellets and a few cat biscuits plus any left over breakfast cereal. Roaches and crix thrive on it !
