LOL, yes, I have a true monster at 27" and currently 1180 grams! She is on a diet though, as I feel she is a little too heavy.

Weights of my skinks as of April 21 are as follows:
Merauke female: 1180 grams
IJ female: 770
IJ female: 840
IJ male: 690
IJxMerauke male: 800
IJxMerauke male: 820

600 is perfectly acceptable depending on size and (sub)species. Obviously a 27" skink at 600 grams could be skiny, while a 17" skink would be great. All of mine are 21"++ so I feel the above weights are ok. (plus I believe that the two IJ females are gravid - increased in weight approximately 15% last 3 months)

:I had one done today to be sure of the sex and its a she as I expected. When I was at the vet they wieghed her and I was told 600 is that in Grams or Milograms....Forgive the stupidity..I was also wondering how that measures up to avg BTS in wieght ..I read a while back some of the weights but I forgot them, I know that James or Craig had that 27" monster on here and it was heavy.......
:Thanks Joey
