Hey all merlin is a year now and usually eats his veg and has one setting of feeding on crix about 7 standard/large ones.
Is this right? Should he be eating less crix?
Also what else would be good to feed him?

Thanks in advance

Weight and length will help here. Besides veg. a mix of roaches, superworms, crix and occasional locusts all help vary his diet.

Pretty much adult size so live food every second day and mixed veg daily. Ours get about 8 adult roaches or the equivalent in crix as a guide.

He's OK ideally they should hit adult size around 18 months but as long as you slow down his feeding now there'll be no problems.
