Is my beardie fat?

This is Hermione, 5/6 months old.

I swear she is obese but my partner doesn't seem to think so

Re: Is my beardie fat?

Alot of beardies seem to be that shape though...

Or at least they do to me.

Re: Is my beardie fat?

It looks like she's just flattening herself. Our beardy does it all the time and it's perfectly normal. It's either a sign of submissiveness or a defence mechanism (so she's a little scared)

When beardies get fat they don't usually expand widthways like that.

Re: Is my beardie fat?

She's perfect! So totally gorgeous! Mine did go through a very round belly phase as she was growing but now the length has caught up it doesn't show so much... Or maybe it's me, as I see it all the time it seems normal to me.
Also, it depends which way you look at her and when: if you look down from above when she's 'doing a pancake' (flattening herself) then yes, that looks huge. Mine does that to fend off any predator and also to absorb more heat from my arm or chest, or to soak up water faster when I bathe her.

Re: Is my beardie fat?

she looks a nice size for her age would be better to see a side pic
what do you feed her as they can have a good variety of food
salad is good if she will take it every day
farleys baby food the box stuff all the goodness they need a nice treat
if you give here wax worms then just now and again as she will get fat on them if fed them to often but keep the crickets going in as it gets them moving and as you know beardies can be lazy hope this helps Rob
