And how are you measuring the temps? If she is doing it under the lamp then she is getting too hot. If she is as close as it looks like she is this is high risk for thermal burn from the lamp.
The lamp is above the screen on the top and a thermostat

Okay I just thought she look big she looks bigger than yesterday a lot bigger maybe she was too skinny when I got her
they each are their own in size. A lot depends on genetics but since you do not know an exact age it becomes a situation of guessing. Based on the pic of her in your hand I am guessing somewhere between 4-5 months. With a female you will have to be more cautious about feeding amounts.

What’s a good feeding amount daily

As she matures you will have to start cutting back her food. By about 6 months she should be getting about 5-8 small feeders each day. At about 7 months you want to slowly reduce by cutting down feeders so that she is on a feeding schedule of 3 days a week with 3-4 feeders. You want them to be on this schedule by the time they are 10 months old.


You will not want basking to be over 80 for her. Very important for females because as she ages she needs this temp no higher at basking to help control the amount of eggs she produces.
