Id say yours is a beardie, mostly from the head shape and patterning down its back, rankins tend to be plainer and their head is a more rounded shape compared to a beardie whose head is more traingle like.

Heres a pic of our breeding rankins for comparison

I'd say it was a beardie going by characteristics, how are you providing UVB and do you use any calcium sprays or dusts?

Maybe stunted growth from inproper care, no offense meant by it though.

no,... you never have to pay attention to anyone unless they are sensible and respectful. any kid that thinks he's all that is mistaken and should be put in his place.

We were told the UVB output on reptiglos wore off within weeks.
We now use Arcadia D3+ 12% uvb tubes- IMO the best on the market.
We noticed a change in our Bds within a couple of hours of installing them.
