Article reference list

In order to supply the most up to date and scientifically correct information possible, the authors will often make use of research articles. This page contains the list of the articles that were used.

Articles are referenced using the list number on this page. They are in no specific order.

A large number of the reference articles listed here were used for calculating the average level of protein, fat, moisture and the calcium to phosphorus levels (Ca:P) of the common feeder insects that can be fed to Bearded dragons. The feeder insects compared are crickets, Dubia roaches, mealworms, silkworms, waxworms, superworms, butterworms and waxworms.
