Elvis is 10" and weighs 26g, she is still only young, and quite small. They tend to grow slowly throughout their lifetime, whereas males are full size by the age of 3. Their size does vary, from 9 to 14 inches, though a friend of mine has one thats 16". If they come bigger, they must come smaller. If she was tiny when you got her ie 7", she was probably still a juvenile, assuming she has grown 2" then take off the tail, she is probably still growing. I had a conversation with a friend the other day and we agreed that WC adults seem bigger than CB adults, so I wonder if a heavy population or instinct makes them grow bigger or faster?Ryan1990 said:BTW.. does she seem small? As I have had her for about 6 months and she was 7" long when I got her but lost about 2" of her tail but is 7" long now (so should be about 9"). Is this a good size for a female? She is also about 26 grams. Do you have any idea what the weight and length of your female is??
It sounds like you got your priorities in order, its good that there are still people out there that want to enjoy thir pets before they go and buy 10 with breeding and profit as their motivation.Ryan1990 said:The viv she is in at the moment is 40" x 24" x 24" but evetually I hope to have 2 females in this viv (including her) and a male in the one I am building as it is slightly smaller (36" x 20" x 20").
Then after a few years of experience I will attempt breeding
