 Possible to guess my uros age?

Boba Fett is a male saharan. He weighs in at 126 grams. SVL is 6" and STL is 11" I got him at the end of March and all the lady said was that he is a juvenile. I wish I had weighed/measured him the day I got him but I didn’t think about it. He sheds a lot so I at least know he is growing.

Why do you say 2 years? based on what?

I don’t like to guess ages [really hard to tell with uros] BUT...based on what ive seen, it could be 8 months, or it could be 3 years old [depending on how it was raised...]

I have 3 of them. None are that large. They are all CB, 4 years old and very healthy. I dont believe any of mine are at the 11" mark head to tail, they are around 9-9.5" and weigh about 100-115g. If you do have a saharan then I would have to estimate that it is at least 6-8 years old. They grow pretty slowly after the first 2 yrs or so. Could even be older, no sure way to tell. Can you post a picture, I can make a comparison to mine.
