Feeding the lizard can be very critical because different breed has their own food habits and timing. Some of the lizards, it is very important to feed them early in the morning because, as they are cold-blooded creatures, they have to regularly warm their bodies according to the prevailing right temperature to help in proper digestion. Feeding the lizard early in the morning gives them the natural chance to bask in the sun all day in order to achieve its proper temperature.

The first responsibility while feeding a lizard is to know whether the lizard is vegetarian or non-vegetarian. If the lizard is a vegetarian, then it is better to feed vegetarian diets like green leafy vegetables, snap peas, green beans, peaches and figs. They can also be given vegetable-based protein sources such as rolled oats in order to round out their diets. Normally, a lizard regularly drinks a bowl of fresh water daily. So, make sure you change its water everyday without fail. Periodically allow them to have a swim in a tub of water so that it can balance its body temperature, and keep the body cool. Swimming is equivalent to cleaning its body from all the dirt and dust.

If a lizard is non-vegetarian, then feed it according to its food habits. Some of the larger lizards will regularly eat small rodents. Most of the lizards eat insects such as crickets and mealworms. In order to balance their diets, it is always best if the insects are fully coated in calcium and/or a vitamin powder before feeding.
