Ok so are stick bugs good for bearded dragons? Some people have told me that and I wasn't sure
They can be a nice snack but I don't think they'd be a viable stable. They're also expensive feeders
Ok hold on here a minute! Some species of stick insect are capable of spraying an acid like substance and it can blind an attacker. Some will also bleed a foul smelling substance from the joints in their legs.
They are not all defenseless!
Are you talking about going outside and catching all these insects you are asking about?
I didn't know that. Stick bugs just got a little bit cooler lol.
Right?! I read that and was like "SWEET!!"
No I'm not going to feed any insects from outside to my beardie. I order them or I go to a pet store
Cool! I would just stick with the regular types of feeders.
Ok thank yu. And I'm ordering some horn and silk worms here soon hopefully he will enjoy them
Silkworms are an excellent feeder - hands down. Danged if I can remember the name but they contain a chemical that helps calcium absorb and they are low in chitin, high protein decent in fat too. But remember variety is always best
I'm working on the variety part
I know its hard and some feeders are easier to breed them others.
