Is my beardie too small??

Not open for further replies.

My BD is coming up to a year in Feb, but I'm a bit concerned about his size.

What do you think? I would have thought by a year they would have been bigger.

I have two beardies that are the same age but one is about two to three inches bigger. As long as he is eating and pooping, its fine.

He does look a bit small for his age? Could you go over your set up so we can see if maybe there is something you could adjust, or if he is just a small dragon naturally?

The basking side of my tank isn't getting up to the suggested 100degrees. Does that mean I need to get a new basking light?
In your perspective does my baby bearded dragon look healthy or unhealthy? Does she look bloated? she is active and eats very well also she is in her basking spot all day
