The following is a list of plants that are known to be safe for Bearded Dragons. This information was found at Melissa Kaplan's website (www.anapsid.org) as well as a few other sites (see below for other sites). Remember, when buying plants from a store, you have to replant them and wait 6 to 12 weeks for the pesticides to "grow out" before feeding.

The usual disclaimer applies - if your Dragon is ill (or has eaten something you cannot identify), please consult your vet. This guide is for informational purposes only.
