Can bearded dragons eat mustard greens?

I noticed they tend to be pretty cheap at the store and since mustard greens can be frozen, I thought it would make for a good healthy option for my bearded dragons. I am just not sure if this is considered safe for them to eat or not.

Yup! Mine love them. That is one of the main staples of their diet. I freeze mine in the winter since I grow my own in the backyard. When I am doing a feeding, I will take out a small zip baggy of it from the freezer and let it thaw in the fridge for a few hours.

One of mine LOVES them. I actually give this to him daily. It is a good staple to the diet and not very expensive which I like. I would love to start growing my own once I move out of my apartment.

Yeah and most vegetables like this. Mine sometimes eat them and sometimes doesn't. I try to give them to him every other day since he sometimes snubs it. He really enjoys kale and spinach though.

Yup yup. A lot of them really enjoy them in fact. I know one who is very picky and no matter what, he will always eat these. I am not sure about freezing this veg though. It seems like it would come out slimy.

It seems to be a staple for most dragon owners. I am compiling a list of different things to feed mine today and going out into the world tomorrow to do some shopping, mask and all.

I like to try to stick close what they would eat in the wild. Since greens they would normally eat aren't always available, I look for alternatives and this one is a very good alternative to a lot of plants they eat.

This is one of the few greens that always gets recommended by ever breeder and master carer that I have met. It is a good staple food to fix their diet around. Very healthy and nutrient rich.

Most definitely! I have one dragon who really enjoys them and another who doesn't care for them so much.

Feed them as often as you like.

Geckos seem to enjoy them as well, at least mine does.

I think most lizards will eat them. Something else they all seem to like is watercress, try it. 😀
