    Hey, I have owned a blue tongue skink for about a year and a half. I have tried to feed him every food I have been recommended, but the only food he will eat is freeze dried fruit. Is there any way I can get him to eat anything else. He refuses all live food and I have been recommended giving him wet cat food but doesnt that have preservatives that are bad for him? Any advice on this would be helpful, im sure he needs other foods than fruit in his diet.

    Wet dog food is a great staple for blue tongue skinks. I use wellness or blue buffalo brand. Theyre natural and grain free. My skinks also love chicken hearts, it's their favorite protein by far.

    I just got a baby IJ blue tongue this past weekend, and he's too shy to take anything I offer by hand so I've been giving him mashed collard greens mixed with wellness brand chicken flavor cat food. He eats it all within about ten minutes of me placing it in his enclosure. I plan on trying to convert him to more of a whole prey diet when he gets bigger, but for now he seems to go wild for the cat food.
