I was looking into adding a black throat monitor to my collection. However I have to bring up the question of size. As it's been brought up in the past I am sure. I was under the impression adult females maxed the sizes of 3-4ft. While males grow more towards 5-6ft . I came across a female for sale that is 2.5 years old (maybe a little older), and 28". To me this sounds a little small for her age. My real question, has she stopped at 28" or will she get larger? I'm looking for pet purposes only, so I will not be overly disappointed if she is not going to grow anymore. But i'm not sure if she's 100% healthy at that size. What are your opinions?
