:Hi, everyone!! ) :I have a question regarding Dandelion Greens? Is this something you purchase at the supermarket? I've never seen it. Or do you feed iggys the dandelions in the yard? Are dandelions the ones with the pinchy leaves? Thanks for any help. I hear dandelions are great for iggys and I would love to feed them to my iggy.
You can purchase them in big sprigs of just the greens at the supermarket, but the dandelions in the yard are just as good! they're growing everywhere near me right now, i've been mixing them in my iguana salad for the last week.. very plentiful :).. Just make sure if you take dandelions out of the yard make sure there are no pesticides and things in that area of the yard, and rinse them off to get rid of bugs and dirt. You'll see the many leaves growing out with the dandelion flowers, those leaves are the greens and are great for the igs. Just make sure ya clean out any grass or other foriegn plant matter that might get mixed in when yuor picking them. I hope this helps! :)
