So been a while since I have posted as all has been going well with Gizmo who we think is around 8 months, he weighs in at 345g now and measures about 12inches.

Question I have is should he still be fed daily live food ? He eats his greens pretty well so wondering when we move off of daily feeds I thought a daily feed should be in place until the about a tear but wanted to check.

Also food wise is it the size between the eyes or from eyes to back of the head, someone was telling me the latter.

The space between the eyes thing is the width of the live food. Not length. so as long as its not to wide for your beardies throat all will be ok.
For example, mine has been eating the odd large adult locust for ages now, but I generally get size 5, and if it was length, that would be well over the "eyes limit" rule :lol: .

This is all within reason of course. Don't go crazy silly with it :roll:

At 345 gm he's nearing adult size and should be able to happily cope with full grown roaches as long as he remembers to chew!!
You can consider backing him off to every second day now with a target of around 450 gm +/- as a comfortable adult weight.
