When feeding a herbivorous lizard,
make sure you use a large, heavy bowl. Bowls made of
clay or heavy glass is best. Small, lightweight plastic
bowls can tip and spill the food, especially if you
have a larger lizard. Their main food supply will be
fruit and vegetables, but rice and other grains can
be offered as well.
When feeding your lizards grassy or leafy vegetables,
you can lay them on the floor of the habitat as well.
Make sure to place food in several locations if you
have several lizards, to avoid them fighting with each
During the warmer months, fruits and vegetables are
more abundant, and more ripe. This in turn means the
food is more nutritious. During the colder months, or
if your herbivorous lizards seem to
be ill, make sure to add a multi-vitamin supplement
to their food. Slowly increase the amount of vitamins
you offer with each feeding. Lizards find their food
based on a number of things, one of which is smell.
Adding these supplements will change the scent of the
food, often times turning the lizard away.
