Obese Baby Beardie

Hi guys! My baby beardie has been doing just fine, when i first got her at the store they told me she was their best eater. She does eat good! (it’s hard to get her to eat veggies tho). She mainly eats super worms and crickets, and i syringe feed her a smoothie i make (kale, collard greens, red/yeller pepper, butternut squash). I’m not too concerned about her weight, but can you tell at this young age if she’s getting too fat?

Beardies grow at different rates -- she does look good however -- but I would start trying to get her to eat her salads NOW - how old is she? You may haft to entice her w/ BSFL - some butter worms and meal worms etc... but she does need to start her salads- I would start offering those in the morning before her main staple feeder and if shes as good as eater you say she may eat them w/ out enticement--
