When to switch over to one live feeding a day?

Postby marhvee » Wed Jun 12, 2019 12:53 pm

Hi! I've been scouring the internet for any definitive feeding guides and while they have largely similar advice for feeding hatchlings and adults, I've run into some varying information regarding feeding older juveniles (8+ months). I've seen some guides claim that you should start doing one live feeding a day at 8 months and some say you should start doing that at 18 months. What is the actual age they should start having one live feeding a day? Is there a definitive indicator (i.e., weight, length)?

There isn't really a set indicator. It varies between dragons. It generally has to do with their growth. As their growth slows down and they approach full size, you want to slowly transition their diet to mainly vegetarian. This is usually between about 12-18 months but it really does vary.
