Dragon size!

Postby Heatherdlx1016 » Wed Dec 16, 2020 6:27 am

Good morning everyone. I have a male 6 month beardie who just hit 15 inches. I wanted to just ask the more experienced owners how big you think he will get at maturity? I know 18”-24” is the average for full grown so I’m guess he’s going to be big. Thank you!

Hi there, it's always interesting to watch them grow and even guess what size they may end up as adults. :) There is really no way to be sure, your dragon is a good average size, not small and not excessively large for his age. You'll just have to wait to see for sure, they can still be growing, although much more slowly , past 18 months and up to 2 years.

Hi there

My girl is 10 years old - she maxed out around 18 months - at 16.5 - 17 inches. Females tend to be / can be a bit smaller than males ... most noticeable to me the is head shape of a female vs make. But yep, she’s on the lower end of that average length chart. Width - well that’s a different story 😂

Charlie is small for an adult male. He's about 2 1/2 years old, and measures 16 inches from tip of his nose to the tip of is tail. I was told by his original owner that he was stunted as a baby, but he looks perfectly fine, just not as big as some. On the other hand, my friend's daughter got a beardie in June and so he's probably a little less than a year old. He's already longer than Charlie.

My rescue Volcano is about 16 months (estimate) and he's 20" long at last check.
