I have a Uromastyx but this applies to many lizards out there. I've heard of feeding the 15 bean soup mix ground up into a fine powder...beans only of course minus the kidney beans for some reason.

I instead decided to grow a handful of them in moisted paper towels. I recently began feeding them to my Uromastyx as a supplement to all his chopped up veggies by simply leaving them on the stem minus the roots and hanging them off rocks. I've had never seen a Uromastyx actually jump!!! He loves them he bounces off his front paws as he rears up on his hind legs trying to eat all the leaves and some of the soft and very moist stems.
Something to try...it is fun to watch and based on my Uromastyx it must be a real treat over all his other veggies. Not to mention it is a very very cheap treat.
An occasional wax worm is still his favorite...I think...

Have a great Holiday Season...

Kidney beans are highly toxic, to us as well, unless properly cooked for the appropriate length of time.

Huh. never knew that. But I do like the idea of bean sprouts for the reptiles. Emotion: smile

I've fed them to my beardies before now, with mixed response and results! They do tend to go slimy fairly quickly though, if not eaten straight away, so I don't use them that often.

I may be remembering wrong, but doesn't MK say they are bad for iguanas?

Not to mention it is a very very cheap treat.[/nq]Harvey also likes Basil which is very easy to grow in a pot on the inside of your window sill (not a very hardy plant hence the reason for being indoors in ireland). Arugula/rocket seems to taste like a stronger version of basil so since Harv likes rocket as part of his diet it would stand to reason that he'd also like the milder tasting basil. I would put him on the kitchen counter whilst I was getting greens from the fridge to feed him and he if he climbed onto the window sill he'd invariably lick the basil growing in the pot if he went to the side of the sill where it was growing.

Needless to say he'd have the whole plant away if I wasn't there to keep an eye on him! He's only allowed a mouthful or two before I rescue the basil from him by removing him from it's prescence
