From my fish background. Certain species of South American fish were considered total canivores until an expedition studied gut content in the wild. It turned out the majority of the gut was vegetable. Much more than could be accounted for by grabing some veggies with their prey. I've cleaned my share of bass and know there will always be some veggies accidentally swallowed. This was not the case here. Has a gut study in the wild been done on these lizards? In what season? What was blooming and what prey was available? All these questions need to be answered before you can say a species is a total carnivore. What I will eat would vary by how hungry I am and what is available. These fish tended to live much longer after being switched to a more balanced diet. I wiil try this cautiously with my dragons. This would not be the first time "accepted knowledge" was totally wrong.

Mike
