Hello, I recently bought a Fancy bearded dragon in October. The store said she was about 3-4 months old, and she was 6 inches long, nose to tip of tail. Now, about 4 months later she is only 10 inches long.. I'm worried shes a bit small? Or is she just a slow grower? she eats fine. and has a T8 UVB bulb

My 7 year old leatherback bearded dragon male, eats fine. but I have not seen any sort of poo within the last 3 weeks. I'm really worried!!


I was holding the fancy bearded dragon earlier, and the 7 year old male saw her.. beard turned black, pacing his cage wall bobbing his head. I was extremely surprised when the fancy started waving her arms and bobbing her head back at him! Is this normal behavior? is she wanting to breed with him as much as he wants to with her? (I'm not going to think about breeding until shes at least 2 years old, and I'm doing more research on is their morphs are fine together.) But I just thought I'd ask :) :blob8: :blob5:

Please dont let them breed she is too young yet ----- also where in the tank is the T 8 --- placement is key-- it should be inside the tank 6-8 inches from basking and no cover on the bulb - bulb exposed for best effects of rays

I'm not even thinking about breeding until she's 2-3. and probably not even then ;) and, its hanging inside tank, about 5 inches away from basking spot, no cover. :)

Sounds like it's just her- mine was slow at first and I weighed him this morning and he's doubled his weight since I last weighed I'm not long ago he is 6.5 months old- and is in constant shed and a crab ass
