    Default Fimbriatus weight data (collaborate our info here)


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Someone was asking me what a healthy weight was for their adult fims and I didn't have a clear answer. My adults are w/c and I handle them just when they needed transferring.

    Someone on the Facebook Uroplatus breeders/keepers group said 80-90 g for breeding.
    .

    My 10 month CB fim is 63g and definitely not full size. I will be weighing the others tonight probably to start a weight data compilation in this thread.

    I can also give a rough history of littlefoots weight if anyone's interested.

    I hope this thread wasn't started elsewhere, I couldn't find anything.

    I'm also interested in visual markers of their being a healthy weight. I find my male has always looked scrawny but seems healthy and behaves normally.

    Thanks!

    My adult female weighs 102g
    My adult male weighs 78g
    My cb 10 month old weighs 63g
    My new female juvie uncertain age weighs 59g


    I feel good about everything except my male. I knew he always seemed thinner but.. Now I'm more concerned. I haven't had great experiences with either exotic vets in my city and I don't want to stress him out further.

    Would anyone else let me know if their fim weights are similar?
