Bearded dragons are omnivores, meaning they will eat plants or animals. They enjoy a wide range of fresh vegetables and fruits in their diet, so it is possible to give them jalapenos. What you need to be careful about though is the seeds and ribs inside, as these can cause intestinal blockages in some cases.
Bearded dragons have very strong jaws that allow them to chew through just about anything up to 1/2 inch thick with ease.
One thing that bearded dragons love more than any other food is mealworms which are small creatures who live inside the earth during the day but come out at night for food.
Bearded dragon owners should always try to get organic mealworms because if they aren’t organic then there is a chance that they were treated with antibiotics and you don’t want to make your pet sick.

What kind of peppers can bearded dragons eat?
You know that feeling of satisfaction you get when you eat something healthy? Well, your bearded dragon is probably experiencing a similar emotion as well.
The more colorful and ripe their bell peppers are the better!
Mentioning just one color might seem like an insignificant detail but in reality, each type has its own set benefits for our furry friends.
so it really helps us out by giving them access to many vitamins such as A & C or antioxidants which help maintain skin health and fight off diseases.
Can Bearded dragons have green peppers?
Yes, of course, green peppers are like the “base” food of your bearded dragon’s diet. They are not as potent or nutritious as red or yellow peppers but they still do a decent job at cutting down on nutrient deficiency and health-related problems that some reptiles might face.
What are bearded dragons not allowed to eat?
What not to feed Bearded Dragons
Onions and Chives: should never be fed raw or cooked.
Mushrooms contain high phosphorus content which can lead to problems with the digestive system for dragons among other ailments, such as forming kidney stones due to the presence of oxalates found within these Edible Wild Fungus (of course one must always consult a veterinarian if there are signs consistent enough).
Leeks have very little nutritional value but may still make someone sick from their taste; this includes garlic too–but thankfully rhubarb is only toxic when heated above 90°C/194 °F! Avocados shouldn’t really come up in conversation until later-on down
Can Bearded dragons eat sweet potatoes?
Bearded dragon owners often have trouble getting their pets to eat. But, if you can get the Bearded Dragon eating fresh sweet potato then that would be best of all!
If not try cooking or mashing some up for them and watch how much happier they will become in no time flat.
Make sure your pet also gets enough calcium with each meal so it doesn’t develop brittle bones from lack-of vitamins/minerals intake as well.
Final word: Can bearded dragons eat jalapenos?
Jalapenos are a great treat to give your Bearded Dragon, as long as they’re de-seeded and de-ribbed first. They help to balance the nutritional content of their diet and provide them with many vitamins such as A & C or antioxidants which helps maintain skin health and fight off diseases.
All vegetables and fruits should be fed at only 1/8th of the total amount (3%-5%) to reduce water retention and blockage risk because excessive fluid intake slowly creates kidney failure over time.
Please make sure we don’t cause any health problems by giving our loved ones bad foods! Because we don’t want them to get sick now, do we?
remember, my fellow readers: the more colors and ripe the bell peppers are, the better it is for their health!
so you can easily crush with your hands or use a knife to cut up smaller pieces of jalapenos if needed.
I hope you enjoyed reading this, my fellow Bearded Dragon fans! Leave your comments below if there’s anything else I should include about feeding our bearded dragons jalapenos. Until next time, see ya later alligator 😉
