Drako is starting into his second shed since I got him, and I have noticed his femoral pores are really getting noticeable (6 to 8 on each leg that are big, then getting smaller on down the leg) - couldn't even see them when I first got him. Now, for the last few days I'm seeing two slight bulges at the base of his tail with the little dimple in the middle (all just below his vent). I think he is about 11 months old now, SVL is about 7" and he weighed a whopping 220g a few days ago. Could it be possible that I am seeing the beginnings of maturity, or am I just imagining it. What is the youngest age that one would be able to see these changes
Hehee ......welcome to the "what the heck gender is my ig?" club! ;D
Maturity is judged by size rather than age; males tend to mature earlier than females. A boy can generally be sexed at about 7 inches SVL, but you usually have to wait until about 10 inches for a female.
I know.....that doesn't help much huh? ;D
