I have a pretty fat male. He gets fed a lot and probably (read: certainly) doesn't run around as much as ones in the wild.
I'm wondering how long they can go without food, or what a good small/slow feeding schedule would be? (He's an adult, not quite full size yet)
Is the pethobbyist forum the best place for this?

2 or 3 crickets every other day is sufficient . they can go w/out food for a few weeks w/out any ill effects. but unlike many snakes, most lizards begin to crash much sooner from lack of food than snakes.

Only large crickets if it is able to comfortably swallow them. If it needs smaller crickets then go smaller.
