Tyrannosaurus Pets


Vegetable list for Bearded Dragons, and other omnivorous/vegetarian lizards 

The best two foods to include are


  • Spring Greens (available from all major supermarkets sometimes called fresh greens)

  • Butternut Squash


If you are only able to provide the above for the animal that will be fine. 

Other leafy greens 


  • Chinese leaf cabbage

  • Bok Choi

  • Romaine lettuce

  • Escarole

  • Endive

  • Leafy fresh herbs such as mint and basil

  • Dandelion Leaves 


Some of these are available as a mixed leaf salad, just check it does not contain iceberg lettuce or spinach. 

Other items to make the dish more interesting 


  • Bell pepper

  • Courgette

  • Carrot

  • Sweet potato 


Try to avoid using the other varieties of cabbage as they contain a chemical that can prevent the uptake of calcium. 

Do not use spinach and Brussels sprouts as they contain a very high quantity of the chemical found in cabbages. 

Do not use excessively watery vegetables such as 


  • Tomatoes

  • Celery

  • Cucumber

  • Iceberg lettuce
