Argentine B&W Tegu not growing

Hi guys,
I got an tegu from my local pet store in February, she was only about a foot when I got her. I have been feeding her pinkies, chicken heart, crickets and fruits when she eats them. I am just assuming its a girl because I don't wanna call her an it till I figure it out! Anyways I have had her for a few months now and it doesn't appear that she has grown at all. She has a basking spot at around 105 and her ambient temps are in the 80s. She has uvb as well, also dusting her food with calcium powder ever since I got her. Some days I offer her many foods and she turns them all down. She burrows quite a lot throughout the day. Any ideas on why she isnt growing?
