    There are a few discrepancies, but is one of the best that I have found & I trust it for the most part.

    What are the discrepancies, Germ? This is the list that I usually refer to if I'm unsure what to feed my dragon, just want to make sure everything is up to par.

    Maybe discrepancies was not the best choice of words. Just little things, like Crickets are listed as an occasional feeder & not as a good Staple. Phoenix Worms are listed as a good staple solely on the fact that they have a decent Calcium to phosphorous ratio, without consideration that they contain less protein than a cricket, 150% the fat of a Cricket & they cannot be gutloaded to increase nutrition ... But as mentioned, all in all is a really good guide & is what I always recommend, use myself & have successfully for many years.

    Ya I was a bit confused by the cricket thing. Kinda made me wonder about everything else on there. But if you guys trust it then I guess I will trust it for the most part untill I can do more research on my own.

    I didn't notice that... but, I do feed Rocky solely crickets. I've given him phoenix worms a couple of times, but I don't want to make it a habit.

    So I was reading the site linked above and it says that cal powder with D3 is useless because dragons get most if not all there D3 from light contact with there skin. Can any one confirm this?

    I've used this one and one other list that I found, and I have to say, neither my beardie or geckos liked the Phoenix worms. Which is a good thing, they're expensive! But I am surprised by some of the stuff I see here, makes me think I just need to try other stuff other than turnip greens and squash. I didn't think they could have Strawberries and Yams. I heard about Watermelon but was never sure 'cause of the sugar contents in it. Maybe I'll give it a go, the lady at the vet that helped hold Jethro while the vet looked at him said her bearded dragon loves watermelon, and will go nuts for it if it sees it.

    Allie loves watermelon, too. I had some in the fridge and she went crazy for it. I went to give her some in her noon feeding with her salad only to discover it slimy and bad! :( I just bought it too!
