any size thats a bit smaller then her mouth. here is some feeding tips. Bugs – The size of the food items you feed your Dragon is extremely important. All food that is offered should be smaller in width than the Dragons mouth. Use caution in choosing the insect size, as too large of a cricket can cause health problems (i.e. – blockage) while digesting. The same applies with mealworms, use small mealworms for small dragons, and increase the mealworm size as the dragon’s size increases. A hatchling, up to 2 months will eat mostly insects, picking at finely chopped greens here and there. 2-week-old crickets (3/8 inch in size) should be offered 2 – 3 feedings a day, only in the amount that the dragon will eat at one feeding… A juvenile Dragon (2 – 4 months) will eat approximately 20% greens to 80% insects… 3 week old crickets should be given 2 times daily and small (1/2 inch) mealworms can be added to their diet. 4 months to maturity should be fed approximately 4-week-old crickets once o
