Overweight? Also 2nd birthday!

Postby Leanbeaaan » Thu Feb 06, 2020 2:24 pm

Today is my skinks 2nd birthday! Yay for them! I've been noticing that they have been really packing on the weight and I'm worried they might be heading towards obesity. I haven't changed their food regimen or what I feed or anything like that so I'm not sure why they've really bulked up recently. I posted a picture of them from today.

What is the diet and how often do you feed? A picture directly over top would give a better view as to whether or not your skink is truly overweight.

I feed wet dog food once a week I give a serving about the size of the head. I was thinking about changing brands.

Agreed. It may be a female. It has the look of one, although that's not certain. Females tend to be a little rounder than males.
