long but skinny, help

Postby myagregory1 » Wed Jan 20, 2021 10:06 am

Hey everyone. Ive had concerns recently that my beardie is too small for his age. when I first got him he was about 7 ish inches. I was told he was about 2 months then, and that was back in may.

That would make his age 10 months. He is long (about 18 inches) just seems so skinny. The pictures attached make him seem skinnier, as his belly hangs low it is just not wide. I just feel like his head is so small and stuff. Idk what to do. Weve had some food problems recently with rejecting dubias and brumation but now hes eating hornworms, superworms, and wax worms every so often (about 5-7 a week). Now that he is eating again will he start getting bigger? Im just really getting worried. I see people post stuff about their 6 month olds and im like wow mine looks nothing like that.

side note: he seems perfectly happy. He is super active and enjoys basking and going on his log and running around my room. Also, his poop schedule is normal.

He looks fine --- he should not be brumating for his age tho--- what are you using for a UVB brand and bulb and where in the tank is it? The basking temps what are they are how are you taking them? NO stick ons please--- how many times / day were you or are you feeding him ?
