Can bearded dragons eat dandilions?

I saw some where that bearded dragons can eat dandilions. If so, which part? (the stem/ greens or the actual yellow flower?)

Do i need to chop it finely? Just general preparing tips. Thanks :)

    All parts are edible, but the stem contains a lot of milky white sap which is bitter. Your dragon will love the leaves and the flowers.

    By the way--you can eat the leaves, too. Just toss them into your next salad. The young leaves will be less bitter. They're very nutritious.

    Chop them just as you would any of his other salad greens.
