    Question Succulents safe for Beardie?

    I would like to keep some munchies in with my dragon, and have been looking into thornless cacti and succulents. Would anyone reccommend or reccommend against any of the following? Or reccommend something different...
    Thanks,
    Lindsay

    Well, if anyone else is interested...I have found so far that portulaca is actually native to natural beardie habitat, and happens to be safe. Its amazing how many plants in natural beardie habitat are actually poisonous. Hens and chicks as well as aloe seem to be safe.

    Hi Lindsey, I am a common name kind of girl. Nice to know about the portulaca...not growing any this year but will remember next year to grow it. Christmas cactus is another safe plant for growing. I have fed small portions of the hens and chicks for quite some years too to my beardies and torts. Snake or (motherinlaw tongue can do fairly well in dry conditions if taken out and drowned with water every once in a while. Check some of the drought tolerant grasses as well.
