Beardie Growth

Postby Hjballinger » Mon Jan 28, 2019 7:26 pm

I’ve had my bearded dragon for about 2 months now. He’s a little over 4 1/2 months old and I’m worried that he’s behind on his growing. He’s only a little over 11 inches in length and 65 grams. He has veggies and Dubias everyday. Is he small for his age?

Yep he's small for his age , but there is range of sizes that healthy central bearded dragons can reach at full maturity and some grow in spurts.
He looks fine to me , and looks alert and happy.

A lot of things husbandry mostly , and genetic , can influence the size of a dragon.

At 4.5 months old
Peppa (F) was 147g
Toothless (M) was 116g
Puff (M) was 105g
Rex (F) was 128g
CBDs: Puff (M)(RIP 10Dec2015),Rex (F)(RIP 16Mar2017),Toothless (M)(RIP 26Nov2017).Peppa (F) (born 15Nov2015).
EBTSs : George & Mildred (born july 2010).
EWSs : Lucky (M)(wild juvenile), cat attack rescue, fatal SI RIP 21Jul2010.Wriggles (F)(rescued injured),thought she was a big lizard, over 8 yrs old, died in her sleep, RIP 2Feb2016). Fluffy (F) 4y old when rescued 14Nov2017 my little livewire , ubertame, thriving and very happy .

His temperatures are 96-102 and he has the 10.0 UVB tube that’s set up inside his enclosure. He’s in a 40 gal breeder.
