With proper husbandry it should get 2-3 ft long. If you plan on keeping and possibly breeding in the future you should no doubtedly invest in Maxwells book-The complete chondro. I actually recently saw it being sold used on fauna classifieds for about half price slughtly used. Well worth it. At over a years age it is safer to sex the animal.I have never heard that you should never sex a chondro, only that you shouldnt sex one till its a year old. They are way to fragile and skinny at the lower third of thier body. Completely safe to do it after a year if done PROPERLY. If you dont need to know right away then it is better to wait till they are a little bigger. Dont do it yourself if you dont know how. I paid a guy at a reptile show to sex mine. I was too nervous to inflict injury. Cloacal spurs is NOT a definitive way to sex GTP. Only proper probing or popping will do it. Since chondros arent sexually mature till about 3 yrs old anyway then there shouldnt be a huge rush. Chondros are readily available all the time so if you need to aquire a mate after you find the sex of yours you wont have problems finding one. People are getting better at captive breeding these animals and are becoming more avaialable. I have also been seeing great deals on sexed adult pairs too for those who dont want to raise thier own. hOPE THIS HELPS
