    Hi, how big is the monitor just now? It`s nice to see one that isn`t well on the way to obesity (well done)! ;)

    few months ago I measured it about 46" although I want her to be larger I heard they will live longer and healthier growing slower so I monitor portions and feeding schedule to hopefully keep her a long time I am thinking she may be a little younger then estimated as well

    How old do you think she is? I`ve never heard of them living longer if they grow slower, it`s all to do with the conditions they`re kept in, and when properly supported they grow very quickly, at least in the first year or two (the larger species).

    by slow I ment mainly not over feeding in order to produce a larger lizard. I'm thinking she will be about 2 early this next year.I got her September 2011 and was told she was about a year but now due to size comparisons I suspect she was between 6-9 months when I got her but that I is just a hi guess. wish I knew

    If she`s almost 4 feet ToL she should be mature, but I think you mentioned she`s not yet been gravid?
