    Question How Much Should My Bearded Dragon Weigh???

    Hi I've never worried about spike's weight she's about 2and a half year old she's active eats fine and everything is ok but a vet has told a friend they should only be about 200grams and spike is just over 400grams ??
    Is that over weight??
    She has not been to the toilet for a couple of days but that won't make much difference lol

    How heavy is your Bearded Dragon??
    Thanks
    Darren

    I don't think so my girl isn't even a year and she is over 500 grams! I don't think mine is fat at all.

    Here is my Hannibal!

    200 grams for a full grown bearded dragon is probably really underweight. It all depends on how long and stuff but 400 definitely isnt over weight.

    Rest in peace lucky! I love you and will never forget you!

    Thanks people I didint think she was over weight,just wanted to see how heavy other peoples were.

    The only thing with spike is that she doesn't like her greens any more and is a locust lover. Doesn't even look at salad any more but I keep trying her with it.

    At 2 1/2 years of age she really should be eating her greens!
    80% greens to 20% protein. Have you tried to place the locust in with her greens! I do that, mind you we don't have locust here, and I'm sure they can jump out of the bowl easily.

    Do you have pictures of her?
    Also are you supplementing with vitamins and minerals? Calcium, Calcium withD3, and multivitamins?

    Make sure that you don't mix the calcium with the vitamins on the same day, they will cancel each other out.

    I found the question asked on 'Yahoo Answers', the most popular answer was 2lb, but one parson came out with "I think it's about 6lb". Oh dear!

    A good example of why you should corroborate everything you read on the internet before believing it.

    6 pounds of bearded dragon, that is definitely stretching it, sometime people are just on their to get a laugh!
