Postby NewBeardieOwner421 » Tue Jan 10, 2017 7:14 pm

I have a bearded dragon that i just purchased and i am curious to know how old she is i am going to include a url of a picture i just took of her tonight could someone take a look and let me know how old you think my beardie is. i ask this because she only eats two crickets every feeding and i feed her 2-3 times a day.

1 to 2 months I would venture to guess.

Okay. Thank you. Also my beardie only eats two crickets per feeding so about 6-8 a day. Is this normal for a beardie this size?

He should eat a lot more when he gets settled in better. Try small crickets "no bigger than the space between his eyes"! I have heard of babies eating as many as 50 or so a day. They should get as many as they can eat in a 10 minute period, 2 if not 3 times a day and the last feeding should be at least 2 hrs before lights out to allow him time to get his meal digested before he goes to sleep.

Okay thank you. I have been feeding him small crickets. But he only seems interested in a couple then he kind of just decides he doesn't want to eat anymore then the crickets just run around the tank. I take them out after about 10 mins. I have only had him since Friday. So I hope he finds his appetite soon.

He's adorable and yes, I'd guess no more than 6 or 7 weeks old
