I have a 20 week old beardie that I joint own with my boyfriend. We often have disagreements on how much to feed the beardie- I say feed her more he says dont feed her too much but honestly, neither of us are really sure! Any advice? We feed her locusts, crickets and mealworms.
Thanks!

You should be feeding it as much live food as it can eat in 10-15 minutes, twice a day. Also you should be offerng a variety of greens daily, whether it eats them or not!

Absolutely spot on (not that I'd expect anything less :D )

Over feeding bearded dragons is probably one of the most common health issues in beardies, many of which are very over weight when they hit adulthood, Its not good for their liver and kidneys and is said to shorten life expectancy, along with other health problems.
