Good weight?

Postby MarlowAndMe » Tue Nov 06, 2018 7:02 pm

Marlow’s 9months old , 14” long ( small due to being in a tiny tiny viv before we adopted him a month ago) and weighed for first time today
242g is that an ok weight for his age?
He’s in shed hence his look haha

Can you sit him in a larger tub or box then weigh him ?

…. unfortunately if his tail is resting on the benchtop , the weight indicated is lower than his actual FULL body weight.

By comparison my gang at 10 months old :
Puff (M) 311.5g
Rex (F) 329.5g
Peppa (F) 383.4g
Toothless (M) 341.3g

At 6 months old my gang were
Puff (M) was 176g
Rex (F) was 221g
Peppa (F) was 242g
Toothless (M) was 175g
CBDs: Cleopatra & Caesar born 28Jan19.
Puff (RIP 10Dec15),Rex (RIP 16Mar17),Toothless (RIP 26Nov17).Peppa (RIP 22Mar19).
EBTSs : George & Mildred (born july 2010).
EWSs : Fluffy - 4yr rescued lawnmowing accident victim 14Nov17.
Lucky - cat attack rescue, fatal SI RIP 21Jul2010.
Wriggles - rescued injured ,thought she was a big lizard, over 8 yrs old, RIP 2Feb16. .

He looks healthy. Kingofnobbys is right about the tail resting on the ground though. Try a large shoebox lid or similar on the scale and tare it. That's what I use for Darwin and it works well.

I just re-weighed him. I used a small box and he weighs 246grams ( that’s with boxes weight already taken off)
He’s 9.5months old and he’s 14inches long
