What Should you Feed Your Lizard?

Fascinating reptiles that come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, each lizard species comes with its own unique dietary requirements. Providing proper nutrition is crucial for maintaining the health and well-being of your lizard companion. In this article, we will delve into the essentials of what you should be feeding your lizard.


Meat, Meat, Meat!

Carnivorous lizards, such as bearded dragons, monitor lizards and some geckos rely primarily on animal protein. Their diets should consist of high-quality proteins with a high meat and moisture content to keep them well hydrated. For meaty meals perfect for carnivorous lizards, try Evanger’s Exotic Pet Meals that come with a recipe formulated specifically for obligate carnivores.


For Omnivores and Herbivores

Many lizards consume a plethora of plant matter, whether they be omnivores or herbivores. Look for food with leafy greens and vegetables such as collard greens, dandelion greens, kale, mustard greens, and squash. It’s important to also provide calcium-rich vegetables like broccoli or turnip greens, as well as occasional fruits for variety.


Variety is Key

Offering a diverse range of foods ensures a wider array of nutrients. Aim to incorporate different types of insects, vegetables, fruits and occasionally small vertebrates to provide a nutritionally complete diet. Evanger’s Exotic Pet Meals come in three distinct flavors; beef, chicken and turkey to make sure your lizard doesn’t get tired of one flavor!
