Hey guys! Bilbo is ~3 months old, about 11-11.5 inches long, and getting pretty chubby. Up till now I've been feeding him 3x a day. In the morning he eats about a tablespoon or so of greens (if packed down) along with ~15 large crickets, and then two more feedings of ~15 large crickets through the day. And he's been ramping up the amount he wants to eat very quickly.

I'm looking for a few more opinions on how I should feed him now, since I think he is close to being considered a juvenile as opposed to a baby. I was told by someone that now is a good time to feed him greens in the morning, and then crickets later in the day. I haven't really read of a unanimous feeding schedule in my research, does this seem like a good idea? I was personally leaning towards feeding him crickets and greens in the morning, and just crickets later on in the day. What do you guys think?

Keep up with what you are doing.

Live insects 2-3 times a day is recommended way past 3 months.

Of course, as much salad as he can eat should always be offered too.

It doesn't matter if he is going from baby to juvie. They need as much protein as they can get along with salads (80% protein 20% greens), until they are around 18 months. Once they hit 18 months, then you can switch them to 20% protein, 80% greens.

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?
