 Quetsion about length

My chuck is about two years and hes only 1 foot long, is this normal. How long does it take them to grow to full length. I would feel a lot better if some one could help me.

You have had for two yrs or were told it was two years? Chucks are one of the slower growing lizards. I would say it is closer to three yrs at at foot in length. My two yr olds are only about 9" and Ive had them from hatchlings.

Growth rate differs dramatically between captive bred and wild caught animals and between males and females. When I caught my female, she was likely around 3 and about 8" head to tail. When I got my male he was about 4" head to tail and a few months old. Within 4 months he grew about 4" while in 6 months she grew about 1". My male’s growth rate really slowed down avter he hit 2 years of age, but he’s 1/3rd larger than my female.
