Bearded Dragons love insects but it is important that you are offering them a good variety. Bearded Dragon Blend contains a mixture of large locusts, super worms and mole crickets, which are not available as live food. The cooked insects are readily accepted from a feeding dish or tweezers. Compared to live food they have the advantage that parasites are killed during the cooking process. The nutrional values are comparable to live food but Bearded Dragon Blend has a better calcium-phospor ratio due to the addition of cuttlefish bone powder during the cooking process.
