Question Sexual maturity in S. s. terrestris

Does any one have information regarding the head to vent size needed for sexual maturity / breeding of S. s. terrestris?

I have a female approx. 100mm snout to vent and a male about 90mm snout to vent. They both show distinct sexual characteristics (shape of cloaca). I am confident the female is old enough to breed. The male is about 3 years old.
Look forward to your responses.
