Overweight?!

Postby SuminskaZuzanns » Tue Jan 19, 2021 8:17 pm

Hi!
I’m new here and I’m currently an owner of beautiful beardie - Drogun, I’m not sure what’s his/her age is but she’s 19,5” and weighs 615g!!!
She/he lives in 40 gal terrarium and has proper fresh lights, temps etc. She/he poops every other or every third day normal poop with a lot of fluid around. Has baths two times a week. I feed her/him every day once - fresh greens (collard, mustard & dandelion) and superworms (7-8) for past 2-3 months. She/he is not a huge fan of any other vegetables or fruits.
Recently she/he is not as active as usual. And I’m afraid that I’m getting her/him too much food!
If someone can tell me how to post pictures I will 😊
Thank you 🙏🏻

She looks good, just a tiny bit on the fluffy side but not much. Maybe jut cut back on the insects by a couple at each feeding.
