Question about feeding

We have a female western hognose, and I feel that I'm overfeeding her. For a little background information, she is 1 year, 8 months and her weight in October was 238g (and growing). We had a little trouble with feeding her for the first 3 months, but once we finally found a scent she liked, we never had a problem again.

She is currently eating 4 hoppers a week (2 Wednesday, 2 Sunday), each averaging between 10 - 12g a piece. I've searched online for information and cannot find anything concrete for her age / weight. Her head is not tiny, and the end of her tail tapers as it should. Am I overfeeding her?

I don't know that I can answer your question but I'll share what I do. I feed mine weekly. If he eats, great, if he doesn't, I remove the dead things.

If you're feeding and she's eating, great. But I would go down to feeding once a week. Hope this helps.
