Blue-tongued skink vs Banana

Blue tongue skinks can safely eat bananas – these are nutrient-rich, contain vitamin A and C, potassium, antioxidants and minerals.

Bananas are however also high in phosphorus which may impact your skink’s ability to absorb calcium and make it prone to illness. It is best not to feed bananas to your pet on a daily basis and to make sure to complement its diet with calcium supplements in order to avoid any nutrient deficiency.

What’s more, bananas are also some of the fruits which are highest in sugar out there, so they should be fed in moderation to avoid weight gain and potential issues with obesity.

Banana peels are also okay to feed to blue tongue skinks as long as they are organic and free from pesticides and insecticides.
