Shedding again, my big boy

He had just eaten lol, prob about 20 tiny (super tiny) roaches, about 6 locusts, 4-5 calci worms and sometimes I swap the locusts for a super worm. Once a week he gets 1 or 2 wax worms. Sometime days he eats a little more or a little less.
 
Is that too much? Should I reduce it?
Depends, how long is he? He doesn’t look fat but that is a big belly, i can still see his hips though , and he doesn’t have a huge beard (another spot fat is stored) but that does sound like alot of food, does he eventually turn his head when hes done? Or is the pit bottomless?
 
I’m not sure on length, it’s bedtime over here for him so I will have a measure tomorrow. He had literally just eaten when I took that pic but after about half hour it goes down, I will show you a pic tomorrow before breakfast. Most of the time he lets me know when he’s done, usually within about 5mins, he will walk away. I am doing two feeds per day unless he signals he’s hungry at lunch, because he started eating breakfast and lunch then not wanting dinner.

it wouldn’t surprise me if he’s just a fast eater and maybe he is eating to much before he realises he should of stopped or maybe he’s just greedy lol! Let me know what you think I should do, I will send pic over tomorrow anyway.

If hes turning his head to say “no more” then hes good :) some beardies will just eat and eat, he looks triple the size from when you got him!

I meant to update you…. I measured him at the weekend and he’s 12 inches, the breeder said he couldn’t remember exactly but he thinks he hatched around the beginning of April, his egg was laid 20th jan, so I’m not sure on how long they take? I think he’s about 3 and half months. Is he the right length?

Oh yea! He’s growing great! He’ll be a big boy/girl before you know it. :)
