    Females do not get as big as males. The adult size on a female is 4-6 inches stv

    From what I've seen in your cham, she does look small for an adult. BUT she does look healthy. Have you ever had trouble with her in her younger ages?

    No she grew to the size she is now in about 5 months and just stayed that size. She will be 2 tomorrow. I dust my crickets and roaches in multivitamins and calcium with D3 and gutload them as well. All lighting is uvb and her basking spot is a uva so I dunno she has been to the vet she is healthy as crap just tiny.

    Oops! Just realized what I wrote. That should(and now, does) read 4-6 inches. At two years old it has pretty much reached adult size although there may be some slight growth.
    A male will be about 12 inches stv, so the much smaller size of your female is to be expected.

    Not really. A female will max out at 4-6 inches. STV.
