Re: Is it normal for a two month old to already be 4 inches long?
I had about 6 out of the 30 I recently hatch that were huge at 2 months compared to the others. I currently have 10 out of that same 30 that could pass for sub adult size and they are just pushing the 4 month mark. One of the offspring of that same group is perfectly healthy but is only about 3 inches and could be eaten by the 10 big ones. All hatched at the same time, all fed the same foods in the same amounts. Some just grew way faster is all. 8 of those 10 are wild types with the golden albinos being smaller.
It's just a sign you are raising him or her well. Keep up the good work.
Jason R Davis : Shepherd, Michigan : Breeding Group of 3 adult Leucistic,3 adult golden albino's,1 adult melanoid female. 12 other adults,10 Juvies and 200+ larvae.
Add to my rep if you find anything I have said useful.
