Is this a good weight?

Postby KarrieRee » Fri Jul 12, 2019 5:32 pm

So I have been following Hiccups weight and length for a while since like last March when I took him in to the vet he was not eating --- when he first went in he was around 440 or so grams - length around 18 inches --- now he is at 480 grams and is 19 inches long and he is 18 months at the end of July---- so in 4 months he has gained 40 grams-- should he weigh more ? he looks good --- and he is eating dubias every other day still w/ calcium D3 and vitamins alternating - not alot of vegies -- if I had feed he will eat sometimes not all the time - I have not been able to find one thing he really likes for vegies - he loves butterworms and horn worms - does not like supers - he eats phoenix worms but I think the butter worms are the most favorite - I have never given him meal worms- I would of thought by now he would be eating more vegies --- I give him a variety of salad mustard / collard mixed or collard/ turnip green mixed - yellow or zucchini squash -- sometimes sweet potato -- cilantro -- apple - rasp - grapes - dragon fruit - blueberries - blackberries - strawberries -- banana -- all trying to get him to eat - bee pollen --- he is the pickiest eater ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have even tried fresh mint---- I have tried arugula lettuce I think it is------------- any other ideas would be appreciated

He seems a very healthy weight to me. I would say he can afford to be picky! :D

Pretty much the 400g+ range is good for an adult in my opinion.
