tbh i have stopped weighin mine and going by weights, as i go by how they look, weighing them is so pointless, i have a female who just looking at is blatently overweight, yet she only weighs 58g (i dont know how some peep get theirs up to 70g, i think she would explode if she put that much on lol)

i also have one who has a small regen tail, which means she only weighs 36g, but she more than healthy its just not possible for her to store much more weight, if she puts any more on will be overweight. their all diff is the thing, and you can cleary see when they are underweight or overweight.

i remeber reading that the tails should be around the same size as their neck, and if you look at the pics, her tail is the same size as her nck, so i'd say she look fine to me
