Can bearded dragons eat grapes?

If they suffer from diabetes or other problems, try to avoid grapes to feed them. If your pet bearded dragon is free from these diseases, feed the grapes following these two facts:

  • 1.The dragon may feel choked and find it uncomfortable to breathe if the grapes are not seedless.

  • 2.Grapes in huge quantities are not good because oxalate content in grapes can remove the calcium from the blood of your bearded dragon.

  • 3.For the better health of bearded dragons, they require food with equal quantities of calcium and phosphorus. But grapes contain more phosphorus than calcium.

Keeping in mind the following conditions, it's better to feed grapes as little as possible to your pet bearded dragon.
