Pineapple Health Concerns
Pineapples may be considered a healthy snack for people, but they do have some health concerns with bearded dragons that makes them more of an infrequent treat than a staple food.High Sugar Content
Pineapples contain a lot of sugar, in fact nearly 10% of the edible fruit is sugar by weight. That may be fine for people, but it's too much sugar for bearded dragons. Excessive sugar can lead to dental issues as well as obesity in beardies so this is a concern.Very Acidic
The pH level of pineapple fruit is 3.6 making too acidic for beardies to eat without discomfort. Foods with lower pH levels can irritate the mouth and stomach linings in bearded dragons as well as lead to digestive discomfort.
