7 month old bearded dragon only 7" long from head to tail?

That is small for a 7 month old but you need to remember that if he came from small parents he will be small too and you won't know that unless you trust the breeder to show you the breeding pair. Now you said he eats fine, What is he eating? Do you give him the daily fresh salad of greens and veggies and all the protein he can eat a couple of times a day? When did you last change your UVB light? They are not effective after 6 months. These are just a few things that come to mind. I am posting my food list and maybe you can find some things there that will interest him.

5 Month Old Bearded Dragon Question?

5 Month Old Bearded Dragon Question?

I have always fed mine as many as they could eat twice a day for about 10 minutes until they were a year old so 15 is not much at all. He needs to eat and also get used to veggies and greens. Why don't you try putting the salad mixture in in the am and hold off on the crickets until say even noon and then again around 5 pm. Soemtimes you have to use tough love to get them to eat the veggies but he has got to get used to them as after a yr old his diet should be 80% greens and veggies. I am going to give you my list of foods to see if he will eat some of these. Try peas as most of them love them. Just put some in on top of the greens and see.
