As your buying from a pet shop, how many beardies do they have in the one viv? Does it or did it have a lot of competion for food? I help out in a reptile shop and some of the baby beardies don't grow that much until the new owner takes them home and they get a lot of attention and no longer have competion for food. It can be suprising how quickly they take off after that. Not saying this is what happened just what can happen. Lovely looking beardie tho!! You got a name for it yet?
