Changing from small to medium dubia

Postby Boundangel » Tue Oct 23, 2018 5:45 pm

Our almost 3-month-old beardie has been eating mostly small dubia. He seems to lose interest in eating after chasing about 15 of them. Although he often will eat more in the evening than in the morning (totaling around 35 a day). When I bought more dubia last night from the local reptile store, I bought medium instead. They seem so much bigger than the small ones he's been eating (just slightly larger than the space between his eyes). Tonight he only ate 7 instead of his 15-20 that he would typically eat. Is this common for them to decrease the number they are eating when the feeders get bigger? I'm just worried that he isn't eating enough every day. Although he has grown 1 inch and 4 grams in the last week.

5 smells = 1 medium in my opinion.

My guy is 6/5months and he goes through 35 smalls(if I run out of food) but when he gets mediums, he goes through about 3-10 in ten minutes.

Make sure you don't see any difficulties breathing and pooping since its slightly larger than the space between his eyes!!
