  • Can Bearded Dragons Eat Earthworms?

    The pet stores I buy insects for my bearded dragon at (Mostly Petco and/or Petsmart) sell feeder earthworms, and I was wondering if it is ok for him to eat these? And if they are, what are earthworms nutritional information or feeding rules (ex- are they as fattening as wax worms?)?

    And if I can't feed him petstore earthworms, why not? The petstores are just kind of screwing us over on crickets and hardly ever have any large, so I was thinking about switching over to mostly worms. I still feed him the occasional wax worm and canned caterpillars/grasshoppers (whichever I have at the time), and of course he gets fresh veggies everyday. He's about 6-7 months old. When he is large enough, I will probably begin feeding him hornworms, but he is not quite there yet. If I did feed him worms I would cut them up beforehand.

    Thanks for your time and advice!
