Baby dragon are notorious eaters. I kept a record of my first dragon and her daily/weekly eating schedule. At the highest point in a week she ate over 1000 feeders. As long as the dragon is gaining and the poops are normal, I would not be concerned at all.
Holy moly that's a lot. Toothless went through 600 crickets and 200 roaches in two weeks so he's definitely eating good. We've got a kitchen scale coming today but we weighed him on the 2nd and he weighed roughly 55grams, up 10 grams from the week before and he's right at a foot long, maybe 13 inches.

Weigh him -- keep track and keep feeding him the way your feeding him- he should be gaining or sustaining
Okay so we got a kitchen scale and he weighs 90 grams exactly and is about 12 1/2 inches long.

I keep finding conflicting info on what their Weight range should be -- that's a good weight.?

Yes as long as hes gaining--- a good weight for a adult beardie is over/ around 300 grams -- You want his tail/ back bone getting fat - you dont want it looking real thin -- post a pic of him please

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
