Jalapenos are a medium sized chilli pepper which is used frequently in many different culinary dishes around the world.
So can bearded dragons eat jalapenos?
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 Jalapenos contain a lot of acidic content, with a disproportionate calcium:phosphorus ratio. They are also obviously very hot as well.
Unfortunately they are not good for dragons to eat due to their spicy nature, not to mention their acidic content. A food to definitely avoid.
