What Is In A Lizards Diet ?


Apartment Listing  

Lizards are usually insectivores with approximately the larger sort being partially or totally vegetarians. The digestive systems of the lizards are adapted to eat the whole animals for a complete diet. A lizard drinks a bowl of fresh water daily. In dry arid regions, most of the lizards lick up some dew drop like the water which drips from the plant leaves early in the morning or late at night.

In captivity, it is quite hard to replicate a lizard’s natural diet. Therefore, we need to add a lot of vitamin and calcium supplements to avoid deficiencies.

The yellow and bright green vegetables, and various kinds of fruits are good, and even offered from time to time to the verified insectivore lizard. For example, the iceberg lettuce is generally not recommended because of its lack of food value and vitamins. It only supplies mostly some fiber and liquid. Good food sources of a lizards include crickets because they usually contain very little chitin (the indigestible exoskeleton in insects). Lizards can also be offered mealworms from time to time, though it is not as good because mealworm contain more chitin than meat. If this is the only food they are offered, then this can eventually block the lizards gut. Mostly soft larvae foods like butterworms, waxworms, and pinkies for larger lizards, a good quality meaty cat or dog food are also good.

Those who have lizards as their pet should take good care of its diet. It is always better to provide their natural diet as far as possible in order to keep them healthy.
