I never got told my new beardies age

Postby Laurenjc01 » Mon May 13, 2019 4:02 pm

Hi I need to figure out what my new beardie reds age is as he is still young and I am trying to work out if he’s at the age where I can start to slightly reduce how much protein he eats or not my guess is he is between 6-8 months but I’m not 100% sure
I measured him the other day and he comes to around 10 1/2 inches in length but he is stunted and he was 90 grams If anyone has any guesses or suggestions I would appreciate it thanks

Oh and by he’s stunted I mean he’s missing a decent 2 or so inches off his tail and he has a missing toe so I’m guessing that probably makes him weigh less than he actually is

Young bearded dragons need bugs every day as many as they can eat--- they will eat these till they are around a year old- still offer vegies collard mustard or turnip greens squash butter nut zucchini or yellow - fruit --- he needs his bugs dusted w/ calcium D3 5 x per week along w/ vitamins 2 x per week --- where did you get your baby from?

Hi Karrie I give him 50+ crickets a day and I know how often he needs his calcium/ vitamins etc But thank you anyway and he has fresh veggies every morning before he has his live food and thank you for letting me know I need to do this to a year old as I didn’t know that also I got him from a family member as a suprise as I had been looking for a beardie to fill my second viv but couldn’t find one. but they got him from a pet store near my area I think not 100% sure though
