Cookie Isn’t Growing

Postby Pancake151 » Wed Sep 23, 2020 12:46 am

Hi guys, I am here with Cookie now and he hasn’t grown at all. His brother is a normal size for a 8 month Beardie. Cookie is still his baby size and weighs about 12 grams. His diet includes fresh veg every day and crickets every other day. We dust his food every time he eats. He has only shedded twice. He basks in his heat and UVB for half his day. Thanks.(in advance.)[Click image to enlarge]

Is Cookie in the same tank as his brother? What is the lighting your using UVB brand and bulb coil or tube where in the tank is it? Cookie should be eating as many insects as he can eat every day 15 minute time frame - I would be offering him worms as well as another staple feeder like BSFL --- if Cookie is in the same tank as his brother I recommend you separate them ASAP-- I am guessing a dominance thing is going on and he will suffer being w/ another dragon -- they are territorial animals and should not be kept together

Some dragons have faster metabolisims than others. One of my dragons has a realy slow metabolisim and the others are pretty normal. Tangos is the slow grower, hes year old and looks like a younger dragon. We took him to some experts and they said that hes fine. He eats fine, basks regularly and is just like the others.
