    Default Is His Tail Too Thin?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I bought this little guy home in May 2019. I don't know his age but he was tiny! He was being sold as a juvenile. He weighed approximately 10 grams when I got him home. He now weighs 29 grams. He gets fed 6 times a week. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday he gets about 10-12 small-medium sized, dusted crickets. Tuesday and Saturday he gets 10-12 mealworms. I've attached a picture from the day I got him and a picture from today. Does his tail seem too thin?
    Thanks!

    I don’t think so he’s the same size as my Leo when I got her and her tail was about that size. As
    he gets older his tail will grow fatter.

    I too have a murphys patternless and i have been worried if he is growing properly.

    He is fully proportionate but is a lot smaller than the SHT i bought from a breeder at the same time and is the same age.

    Iv been wondering if its common for murphys patternless to be typically smaller.

    I currently have a juvi leo. He is about 10 months old and almost full size. Different leos grow at different rates. Your leo looks just like mine when I first got mine. But don't worry! I feed my leo perfectly fine but his tail is not big yet, but it's because he's not full grown. After he's about a year or so his tail will most likely be plump!��
