    image.jpg 61A87B28-E4DE-44BE-B224-7A282719CAA3.jpeg Hey so I feel like my beardie is growing wayyyy too slow. I got her on Christmas and I feel like she hasn’t grown too much. Is this bad? What should I do. I feed her 10-15 medium crickets a day and always have salad available for her. She is about 10 inches now.

    super worms are a great way to fatten them up but beware they can cause constipation in beared dragon's if your feeding to often.
    super worms are like candy so only as a treat is advisable. your beardie looks healthy so keep giving her greens and crickets or dubia roaches and if your not already add in a multivitamin for retiles.

    Yeah, that’s not his main food source he really does like his greens! I also have a dubia colony!

    your doing everything right then. as long as he keeps eating he will grow. my Stryker is 4yrs old and is only 15inches long but she weighs in at 485 grams. she is small and grew slow too, but she is healthy and active. I feed her a variety of greens and vegetables with a little fruit. she loves bugs so gets a variety of them as well.
    keep us posted how your little one is doing.

    get smaller crickets. my bearded dragon is 16 in long and he eats medium crickets. make sure its smaller than the lenght between her eyes.
    ricks45 and mamaof2dragons like this.

    I got my beardie around the same time and admittedly he is much larger. Yours doesn’t look unhealthy though. Make sure she’s getting plenty of crickets dusted with calcium 1-2 times a week, or you could try dubia roaches
