Why Are Phoenix Worms Good Food for Bearded Dragons?
We Take a Look at the Value of These Feeder Insects
New bearded dragon owners find themselves wondering what to feed their beardy. We’ve all been there. Our site is full of delicious and nutritious options, and it can be a little overwhelming to try to decide what option you will select for your new pet. From mealworms to Black Soldier Fly Larvae, ABDragons offer so many choices that it can be hard to pick one. But over the last 15 years, Phoenix Worms have staked their claim as a leading candidate.
Phoenix Worms have been on the scene for a relatively short time. Back in 2005, they were introduced at the National Reptile Breeders’ Expo in Daytona Beach, Florida. Since that time, they have made quite an impact on the feeder insect market, but why? Here are some reasons why Phoenix Worms are good feeder insects for bearded dragons.
Phoenix Worms Are High in Protein and Low in Fat
Protein helps your bearded dragon get big and strong, but too much fat can lead to health issues. High fat foods taste good to your dragon, but they can also discourage them from eating their veggies. Phoenix Worms have the benefit of being loaded with protein while not containing all of the fat of other options.
Phoenix Worms Are High in Calcium
Just like it does in humans, calcium helps fortify bones in your bearded dragon. One of the biggest health risks facing bearded dragons is metabolic bone disease. This makes the Phoenix Worm a natural vitamin supplement to help your bearded dragon avoid the disease.
Phoenix Worms Provide a Protein-Rich Complement to Greens
As mentioned, the low-fat Phoenix Worm doesn’t deter dragons from eating greens. This is important because dragons need a good mix of greens and proteins to remain healthy. Your dragon needs to eat a balanced diet, and Phoenix Worms can help them achieve that.
