Can blue tongue skinks eat banana?

Blue tongue skinks can eat bananas – they are nutrient rich, contain vitamin A and C, potassium, antioxidants and minerals, however they are also high in phosphorus which can impact your tegu’s ability to absorb calcium and make it prone to illness. It is best not to feed bananas to your skink 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 highest in sugar out there, so they should be fed in moderation. You can even feed banana peels if they are organic and free from pesticides and insecticides.
