He hatched in mid-may, I got him towards the latter half of June at about 5 weeks old, so he's about 9 weeks old now.
This is my first time having a veiled, and his growth/size, compared to the panthers Im far more familiar with, is remarkable. He's got to be double the size of a similarly aged panther.
I stick to the same feeding theory as I used with all my panthers - giving him as much as he can eat in about 5 minutes once or twice (occasionally three times) a day. I suspect he'd eat constantly if I gave him the opportunity!
He's only 3 months old??!?!? Holy cow! I have recently started trying to follow your gutload recipies (with my own modification based on what I can or can't find ), and I'm glad I did. WOW!! He's gorgeous and huge. My 1 year old male was only 2.5 months old when I got him but it took him about 3 more months before he looked like that. WOW! That's all I can say - WOW!!
If that isn't definitive evidence of the efficacy of your gutloading technique then nothing is! Just incredible how big he is at just 3 months.... If it was just about anyone else I would call BS I don't think Godzilla was that big at 3 months!! I can't wait to see him full grown
If he wasn't right in front of my face, I'd call BS too.
I would say his genetics and having had a healthy mother are equally if not more critical factors than my gutloading, although obviously a good diet is helpful. And its possible I am over-feeding him; I really hope Im not ! He's not getting much more than my adult panthers.
