Growth Rate?

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

So I got Boise, my female bearded dragon for Christmas last year at petsmart. I know thats not the greatest place to go, but its worked out :D The only thing that has been troubling me is that Boise is nearing a year old but is only about 14-15 inches. She eats like crazy though; 50-75 phoenix worms, dandelion leaves, mustard greens, bearded dragon mix, crickets, and on rare occasions fruits. She is pooping solidly and normally. I'm just concerned that she is very small. It is not her lighting, I have the reptisun 10.0 tube bulb, a 100Watt heat lamp. and if it gets cold a ceramic heat emitter so it isnt the lighting. Any ideas??????????

i have two beardies that have grown at completely different rates. my little boy had a bad start to life and was seriously about 6" for about 4 months. he's now over a year old and about 18" while my 520 gram female is still at about 14-15". i really think it just depends on the beardie. your girl doesn't look unhealthy, so maybe she's just a slow grower. or she could just be as long as she's going to get and will start filling out eventually. either way, as long as she is eating and getting the proper care i wouldn't worry too much about it.
