She about devoured my finger when I gave her blueberries. She definitely loves blueberries. Not sure why she didnt go for blueberries the first time.

How often can they have blueberries? A couple every few days? A couple every few weeks/once per month? Less? etc?

Blueberries are high in sugar I would feed occasionally --- like a few every couple of week

If you look on my post April 28 I sent you the website for nutrition -- look at that and it will tell you what she can and cannot have and how often to feed -- :)

I check the nutrition site a lot, however "occasionally" isnt the most useful reference for how often/much they can have. :/

I guess what ever occasionally means to you -- just dont feed as something every week or so I would go w/ every 2 weeks -- you dont want her developing diabetes --- so alot of sugar meaning fruit is occasional --- I cant get my 2 dragons to eat fruit at all -- I have offered everything and they wont eat it so I guess I am lucky in that aspect ---

This is a good point! It would be good to know how often occasionally is!

Im in the opposite boat right now. As of recent, she will eat insects/fruit but no veggies/greens.

Is she by chance getting ready to shed? Ours seems to slow quite a bit on her greens when she's about to shed.

I randomly decided to weigh her again today, and she has lost a considerable amount of weight. She was 436g as of March 10 2020, and she is now 403g as of July 17 2020. I've weighed her in between but I am not sure where I logged the numbers.

Losing weight? What exactly are you feeding her? Is she acting sick? Lethargic? Is she eating?

She's eating various greens daily and either dubias or crickets every 2-3 days. I just confirmed she hasnt been weighed since mid April so the weight could have been lost any time in the last three months. She's active and acting like usual, no signs of stress or abnormalities. She has been shedding a lot though.

Edit: greens include dandelion leaves, mustard/collard greens, endive, escarole, and turnip greens.
