Default Pleurodeles Waltl transition from juvenile to adult

Hi,

Anyone know how to see if a Pleurodeles Waltl is juvenile or adult? Is it just based on size or do they look different in some way? I've tried finding answers to this elsewhere but I can't find anything definitive.

Thanks

Mostly just by size.

Do you know at what size the transition is?

I guess there are factors like nutrition that would make a difference, but I can't be specific. The adults will be more developed physically. You could try googling pictures of pleurodeles waltl adult and pw juvenile and if you see enough pictures, you can get a feel. Or poke around pics on the site.
