how often do I have to feed it
Water dragons are omnivores, eating mostly insects with some veggies and fruit on the side. About 80 to 90% of the dragons diet should be made up of insects. The other 10 to 20% can be made up of veggies and fruit.
Crickets, butter worms, grasshoppers, wax worms and roaches are all common feeder bugs. You want to make sure you dust your feeder bug with a calcium supplement once a day, and dust with a vitamin supplement once a week.
You also want to gut load your feeder bug with nutritious fruits and vegetables 24 to 48 hours before you feed the bugs to your Dragon.
They can also eat pinky mice, make sure these mice are dead before feeding. Even though water dragons obviously would eat a live mouse in the wild, the chances of the mouse inflicting a wound are still there and feeding a dead one might save you a trip to the vet.
-One thing you want to take notice with a Chinese water dragon is its color. A healthy Dragon Will have a bright green color. If its color turns to a more pale faded green then it might be Time to check the temperatures in its cage. A color change could be a sign of illness or stress in general. Take the time to investigate if your Dragon is stressed out for any apparent reason such as temperature, lack of food, or too much food (leftover crickets attacking the Dragon) or it might be time to visit the vet.
The water Dragon probably should be left for a more experienced lizard keeper. The best thing you can do is read more care sheets and familiarize yourself with a book or two on the great lizard known as the Chinese water dragon.
I feed my chinese water dragon crickets and super worms every other day and 1 pinkie a week and she is doing great. I agree with above you should be experienced to have a water dragon getting the humidity and heat to stay up is kinda tricky. Also make sure your water dragon has plenty of things to climb on and a clean water source
WTF is a water dragon? And, if it is a water dragon, doesn't it live in the water? why else would it be called a water dragon.
