Watermelon Health Concerns
Watermelon has a few health concerns that prevent it from being the most desirable fruit fed to bearded dragons. Below are the main areas of concern.Poor Calcium to Phosphorus Ratio
Watermelons nearly twice as much phosphorus than calcium. This is a concern because phosphorus prevents calcium from being absorbed. So watermelon will need to be served with other foods which are rich in calcium like kale or arugula to correct the mineral imbalance.High Oxalates
Oxalates are chemicals produced by plants to help manage calcium levels during development. When foods high in oxalates are consumed the oxalic acid will bind to calcium and prevent it from being absorbed. Watermelon contains 11mg of oxalates per 100g serving, which means it is considered "high" in oxalates. This means you should reduce the portion size of watermelon so the meal contains less than 10mg of oxalates. For reference, half a cup of diced watermelon weighs 75g and contains 8mg of oxalates.
