My Leo hatchling is a few months old now. I've been recording weight measurements every week or every other week. I was just wondering if you all thought this was an okay rate or what I could do to improve. Thanks!

40.1. oz - Aug. 6th, 2013
39.5oz - Aug. 15th, 2013

I think you're doing a great job with your baby. I would love to see a pic of him, though :p

I think you've got the wrong measurement there. If your hatchling weighs 38 oz, which is almost 2 1/2 pounds, you've got yourself one big baby.

lol... I was about to comment on this. My Sulcatas that are the same age are just a hair over 60 grams. Man I wish I had a 40 oz three month old! I would take him on a tour.

As for the weights of your Leos, mine are about the same and they are little piggies so I am guessing this is about right. If not, I should be worried as well.

By the way, I love the no spots!
