Feeding my omnivorous lizard well

Nutritional requirements

The diet of the omnivorous lizard is approximately the same as that of the herbivorous lizard for the whole plant part. The latter must represent about 60% of its diet.

The omnivorous lizard will therefore need meat food intake. Each species has its preferences, and again, from one lizard to another, not all will have the same tastes. Nevertheless, be aware that omnivorous lizards can eat insects (crickets, locusts, grasshoppers, mealworms, butterflies, etc.) or mice. If you can, do not hesitate to feed your lizard with live insects: the lizard is a fine hunter!

Again, your lizard will need food supplements specific to omnivorous lizards.

Meal frequencies

Because they consume more protein, adult omnivorous lizards can usually make do with 2 to 3 meals a week. It is also possible to provide them with plants every day and to supplement once a week with a ration of animal protein. Of course, it will be necessary to inquire beforehand with the breeder according to the species bred.
