Juvenile Beardie eats LOTS of greens.

Not open for further replies.
Hi guys, I know this might seem like a strange post, but after reading through forums and care sheets, my Beardie's (Heraclitus) behavior has me a little concerned. Heraclitus is about four months old and loves to eat his crickets - he generally eats between 30-50 a day. However, he also really enjoys his greens and eats a least a small bowlful a day. I've read through many care sheets and forums, and everything I have read says that Beardies should eat mainly crickets when they are young, and mainly greens when they are older. Should I be concerned that Heraclitus is eating so much of his veggies at such a young age? And if so, should I start to limit the amount I give him, so that he can't eat as many, regardless of if he wants them?

Thank you in advance for any advice you might have!

Thank you Jewel. :) I'm sorry to waste your time with what probably seems a stupid question, but I love my Beardie and just wanted to make sure he stays healthy.

This is Atlas, he's my 3 year male leatherback. i don't know whether to be worried as he has no femoral pores what so ever, not even small ones! i always thought they would come with age but he is getting a bit older now and i'm starting to worry. here are some photos of his lack of pores. if someone could let me know if this is healthy that would be greatly appreciated!!
