Length/weight for '00 Mexican rosy?

Posted by Jeannie on April 26, 2003 at 21:57:31:

My '00 male Mexican rosy only eats for 6 months out of the year, if that, although he's a good eater when he is eating. He brumates 4 months a year. He has grown pretty slowly, but steadily, and doesn't lose a lot of weight during his fasting times. I just weighed and measured him and he is 20" and 93 grams. Can anyone tell me if his weight is OK in proportion to his length? He's eaten very well since he came out of brumation, but it looks like he's going on another fast, so I really want to track his weight carefully this time, in case it's a long one (last fast was 8 months, and he's only been eating 2 months).

Thanks for any help.

Jeannie
