Food for Lizards with Strictly Reptiles
Reptiles are beautiful, intriguing, a big responsibility, and thus knowing what Food for Lizards are appropriate and healthy for the reptiles you own or care for is ideal. People from all walks of life care for lizards and other reptiles, whether they are a breeder, a pet owner, or work for a zoo or wildlife sanctuary. Part of making sure these animals are happy and healthy is having a safe and spacious enclosure for them, maintaining the proper temperature settings, and of course having the appropriate Food for Lizards available.
Since most reptiles and lizards vary, they all eat different things. In fact, most smaller lizards eat insects, but there’s a decent amount that are herbivores or even omnivores. Some even hunt and kill live prey if they’re big enough, like a monitor lizard or Komodo Dragon.
In the wild, lizards might eat a wide variety of worms, spiders, beetles, flies, other small animals like baby birds, baby mice, or smaller lizards, eggs, and fruits and veggies.
Some reptile owners might even choose to care for an insectivorous lizard to opt out of having to kill mice to feed them. In this case, most people will feed their lizards crickets, mealworms, or wax worms. Some examples of pet lizards that eat insects include anoles, leopard geckos, and long-tailed skinks. Iguanas are mostly vegetarian, while bearded dragons and blue-tongued skinks are omnivores.
While it’s easy to find things like crickets at a pet supply store, you should make sure there’s still a little more variety in your lizard’s diet since only feeding it crickets can lead to deficiencies in some nutrients.
