QnA on Crickets for bearded dragons

Bearded dragons are one of the most popular reptile pets in the world, and for good reason. They're some of the most friendly and interactive creatures out there, and they make great companions. And if you're looking to add another pet to your collection, crickets may be a good choice.

Crickets are omnivorous animals, so they'll eat anything that's available to them. However, some people advocate giving bearded dragons a diet that consists mostly of live insects. This way, your dragon will get the nutrients it needs while also providing entertainment and a little bit of food security for you.

    In a day, how many crickets should a bearded dragon eat?

    Ten to twenty crickets. Adult bearded dragons consume 10-20 insects every day, as well as leafy vegetables.

Medium-sized crickets with soft exoskeletons should be fed to your adult bearded dragon.

    Is it okay if I keep crickets in my bearded dragon's cage?

    What is a decent bearded dragon feeding schedule?

    Protein: Bearded dragons eat live mealworms, waxworms, and crickets that have been "gut loaded," or provided vitamins and nutrients that are beneficial to lizards.

    How do you capture crickets that haven't been eaten?

    When you turn the lights off for the night, they are usually out in the open and much simpler to grab the following morning when you wake up and switch them on.

    How frequently should a bearded dragon be bathed?

    As a general rule, bathing your dragon three times a week should enough to keep him clean and hydrated. If your dragon despises showers, once a week would be an acceptable target. If your dragon can't get enough bath time, you should do it more often, maybe once a day.
