    Re: Frank - The Blue Tongue Skink

    Frank is doing well and eating his 2 meals a week.

    He eats one meal that is veggies with some fruit and some ferrets pellets. Then, 3-4 days later, he eats a meal that has all that, but also a little wet dog food and some vitamins and calcium. He occasionally gets a snail or two or a pinkie on this day as well.

    He just turned 3 years old, but has gained weight over the past year - about 75G and is up from 620G.

    His body shape looks good to me and when I give food, he eats his fill (about a head size worth) and walks away and I take out.

    I imagine his weight gain should slow as is he is probably mature now at 3 years?

    He's still a very calm and chill buddy.

    Any thoughts are welcomed.

    Frank didn't eat for a week and I was 75% he was starting to brumate and 25% he had to shed. Well, he finished shedding yesterday and happily ate today.

    He's looking pretty suave, even in these iPhone pics.

    He's so handsome! But if you're asking for opinions on his weight? I don't see many of these & he looks great to me, but take that for what it's worth.
    He appears to be very healthy & apparently has a good appetite too.

    Not super worried about weight per se.

    As with my other reptiles, when they reach adult size, I am interested in body shape and overall health over a number. However, I fully believe it getting regular weights so as a keeper you can spot potential trouble, especially if losing weight.

    Frank looks good and healthy to me. He also acts/seems healthy. Not too worried at the moment.

    Thank you for the comments.

    Re: Frank - The Blue Tongue Skink

    Caught a picture of Frank with his tongue out today, but of course, with the iPhone, on a similar colored background, and I cut the tip of his tongue off the shot. Otherwise, I still think it's pretty cool.
