    I hope this is the right forum..Sorry if it's not.

    I am wanting to buy a mountain dragon in the future.

    I've done my research and everything but I cannot find anything about HOW much you feed your mountain dragon (how many bugs) and how often.

    So how much do you feed your mountain dragon and how often?

    As youngsters, a lot. Generously. Almost as much as they want. As older animals, a bit less than it takes for them to look overweight. Trying to judge exactly how many insects per day or anything like that is too difficult to bother with, but if you learn to recognise how they look like when they're under and over weight you can feed to keep them about right. Ideally you feed small lizards like this daily. They're generally easiest to just feed a lot, they're not really too prone to being overweight, although older males are a little prone to it. Make sure you have a steady insect supply, and remember to use the calcium and multivitamin supplements.
