Hi I have a Jackson that is starting to look a little chunky. I feed him about 15 to 20 crickets a week I also skip days of crickets and replace them with waxworms. He is almost a year old is this to much or will he grow into it? Or should I keep feeding him this way? How can I slim him down? Any help will be awesome!

I would stop feeding wax worms or minimize them to just a treat, they are really fatty and not very nutritious

I would also stop feeding him everyday. As chams get older their metabolism slows down, so to ensure they live longer we should limit their food intake to every other day. Also variety is key, so I would feed him other feeders like super, silk, and hornworms. Dubia roaches are good as well
