    Default Overweight Leo?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello!
    I have an adult female leo, and shes always been a excellent feeder. So much so I think shes possibly overweight. Ive restricted her diet a lot for the past 4-5 months. She eats every 2 days and only eats dusted crickets and dubia.
    When I first got her she mainly ate superworms, and later learned theyre quite fatty so I made the switch to dubia and crickets.

    A little info about her:
    1 year old female
    Current weight - 53.8 grams
    Tank size: 36 x 18 x 12 Exo Terra

    Im curious to see if Im over worrying if she is indeed a tad too chunky lol.
    I dont handle her much as shes a typical spastic blizzard, but she is super active in her terrarium.

    Thanks in advance!

    Fat tail, but her body looks normal. Does she have little fat packs behind her front legs?

    No bubbles or anything. Im wondering if its just genetics, shes quite short and stocky.

    I have had quite a number of geckos that have that body type. In my opinion, 53 grams is not that heavy at all. Many of my geckos have been in the 80-100gram range and none of them are giants. I think she's fine.
