iv'e been looking after a friend's beardie while she's away on holiday ! the beardie is a female called charlie and although im not an expert on beardie's i was thinking that charlie look's a bit over weight i would think she's at least 2 year's old so im not sure how much she should weigh at this age and as yet i haven't weighed her so i was thinking of doing so as soon as i can but if she is over weight what would my friend have to do to bring charlie's weight down ? i know that worm's are fatty so she would need to cut them out of her diet and she feed's her on locust every other day and veg every day so it's getting the right advice to to find a balance that wont do her any harm !! .

Best to put a photo up as adult weight varies a lot (400~700 gm!!) To help lose weight the only way really is to cut back on the quantity of food and maybe stretch live feedinng to every third day.
