Can Bearded Dragons Eat Asian Pears?

Asian pears are the fruit of the tree of the same name.

They have a crisp, grainy texture that is very different from European pears. They are generally served raw and peeled.

So can bearded dragons eat asian pears at all?

Lets take a look at their nutritional data and find out more.

In particular, their acidic, calcium, phosphorus, water, protein, fat, sugar, and fibre content is of most interest when it comes to bearded dragons.

Another thing of importance is the calcium:phosphorus ratio as for every part phosphorus, there needs to be another part calcium if not more. From 1:1 to 2:1 is ideal as far as bearded dragons are concerned.

As you can see Asian pears have a disproportionate calcium:phosphorus ratio, they also have a high amount of sugar in them and a low amount of acidic content.

This means that they can eat them but only on an occasional basis, because they are high in sugar. They are not a staple food for them.
