Wild Food Sources – aka weeds

Having crossed the channel and now residing in the french countryside, we are foraging regularly for wild fresh sources of lizard food, I have mentioned in previous posts the wonders of dandelions (or pissenlit) as they are fondly known as here, but  have also discovered some other sources of wild foods, that probably grow in your garden that you can use to feed your iggies and uromastyx. (these are often found in the boxes of dry mixes you buy from the pet shop.

Ribwort (plaintain) leaves

Sow Thistle (sonchus), leaves and flowers (not as prickly as they look, especially young leaves)

Clover, leaves and flowers

Whilst our Uromastyx has embraced the move and the new foods, Iggy is not entirely convinced yet.
