 Mature?

2-3 years old =) But never less than 2.

Male Waterdragons keep growing till they are around 5
females around 2.5 years of age

the opposite actually.

Males grow faster than females during the hatchling/juvenile stages, but in terms of total size, males grow bigger, but take a slower time to reach that final size .

hmmmm, how come I have 2 female CWD’s
that have already laid fertile eggs this season and they
are both 17 months old......

CWD’s mature/grow at different rates contingent upon husbandry, diet and genetics.

so much for that NEVER under 2 years of age fallacy......

females will lay their eggs approximately 2 months after mating with a male.
which would mean my ladies mated in early January(& they were caught in the act)
as their eggs have been incubating for 2 weeks now.
