Bearded dragons do not eat ladybugs because they are toxic to them.
However, the toxicity is mild to bearded dragons.
Instead, beardies prefer crickets or mealworms.
As a result, they are offered once in a while or they could get sick.
A bearded dragon is not interested in eating ladybugs.
Ladybugs produce chemicals to keep predators at bay.
This make them somehow toxic to beardies.
There is little lasting harm if a bearded dragon eats a ladybug or two, but it is best to not feed your dragon any bugs you do not recognize as safe.
