Pinkies cause obesity in herps. It's a really archaic thing to feed nowadays. 10-20 years ago it was in vogue because it gave already nutritionally starved animals a chance to look healthy and fat but it was really destroying their livers. Feed a staple of crickets, flowers like squash flowers and hibiscus, berries, field greens and worms. Mealworms as long as they are fed sparingly are a good source of extra calcium. Larger animals aren't as much at risk for impaction either and beardies get big. 12-20 inches big. Also, as they get bigger and older they'll eat more and more greenery and fruits so it becomes less necessary to feed meaty foods which is also an even bigger reason not to feed pinkies.

well she sure likes her greens, just about anything green is gobbled up. Crickets seem to be a hit or miss as she usually only eats one or two out of 5 right off, give her some meal worms or those super worms and she pigs out.

If it's a baby it's 80 percent crickets and 20 percent veggies. Don't feed spinach at all. Feed babies as many crickets as they will eat in 15 minutes 2 times a day. Adults no more than 50 crickets per week. I went through 1000 crickets a week when mine was a baby . Any questions you have just ask
This. I've raised three beardies since I was a young fella and this is spot on. Spinach, kale, broccoli all bind calcium so stay away from them.

Ahh...I wanted one of these so bad got a bigger fish tank instead. I've had leopard geckos before but they're not as cool. And yeah don't feed iceberg lettuce only dark greens. I've heard a beardie will even eat a live fish out of water!
