Bearded dragon not growing?

Postby JennaDerp » Tue Aug 04, 2020 8:21 pm

This isnt as severe, but I’ve had my bearded dragon for about 2 months and she isn’t growing much at all. I have proper UVB lighting, a heat mat, and a heat lamp. I feed her about 15 worms/dried crickets/ dried grasshoppers daily. I’m struggling with getting her to eat veggies. She is shedding frequently but i havent seen much difference. I also give her the proper amount of water. Im not sure if im supposed to be feeding her multiple different times, but she does poop once a day.

Do you have any pictures of your dragon, along with the tank setup just so we can see the
overall environment.
Is your UVB a tube bulb or a compact/coil light? How often do you give her calcium
Do you have an idea of her age?
Interesting that she has shed often, that is always a good sign. Maybe start keeping track
of her weight & length in a journal just to be able to remember her growth.
