Is my beardie eating too much?

Postby Emily7709 » Tue Sep 15, 2020 5:54 am

I have a 5 month old dragon and he seems very healthy. He chases bugs, explores his terrarium, and is super friendly. I'm just worried that I am feeding him too much.

He poops every other day (solid and large) but his stomach looks bloated. I feed him twice a day with either crickets, roaches, or worms. And occasional salad. I feed him around 40 bugs a day but it seems like he could eat forever! Please take a look and let me know what you think :)

Hi Emily, at 5 months old he's looking great ! It's generally good to feed them as much as they like while they're growing but it can still be beneficial to reduce the amount of bugs a couple times a week for these big eaters to get them to eat more greens. Other than that he's looking very healthy and your feeding regimen is good. :) BTW, what is his weight + length ?
