Hello everyone,
My name is Marsha I have a bearded dragon "Petrina" I found her at Petsmart - I know Petsmart not really a good place to buy bearded. I couldn't walk away her food was dry and crickets too large for her. They held her wrong I put her in my hand she looked at me and just stayed there-I refused to put her down so she came home with me. She was 5 3/8 inches and 5 grams. 6 months later she is 19 1/16 inches and 504 grams, she so sweet I am like a nervous mother always making sure everything is alright.
I just took in her 6 month poop check which was neg. She has slowed her eating which worried me but was told normal and with this crazy weather I can understand it. Looking forward to learning and talking about dragons.
Marsha

Welcome Marsha. Great job with Petrina, a 5 gram baby is really, really tiny.
A little slowing on eating is perfectly normal this time of year, as long as her weight is holding study and shes healthy, its not something to worry about. As they reach their full size, you'll notice a definite decrease in appitite from that of a healthy growing youngster. I have an adult male that has almost zero interest in protein these days, but he eats everything else just fine.
Fauna is a great forum, I'm sure you'll be happy you came!
