Beardie not eating as much

Postby OperationReggie » Mon Jan 09, 2017 1:16 pm

My beardie is 1 year and 2 months old and his eating pattern has slowed down a fair bit. He wasnt a beardie that would eat a lot anyway but has always been offered as much as i could afford. last few weeks he will only a few days a week and it may only been a few ripped up pieces of kale or maybe 1-3 crickets. Is this normal for a beardie of his age or should i try buying new food to interest him. He is not underweight by any means and always has food to eat if he wants.

Thanks in advance.

It sounds like he's approaching full size so his growth and appetite are slowing. He should be on mainly salads now and dial back the crickets to one meal all he wants every other day or so then every third day or so while offering a nice big, varied salad every day.
