Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I'm a biologist with a special interest in reptiles.
Bearded dragons grow at different rates, depending on genetics, temperatures in the environment, and food. For that reason there is no absolute normal. However, there are average sizes. Average for a male at 6 months is about 17 inches. At this site, you can see some average sizes:
