Maximus turned 11 Months old on Oct. 1st and I finally got around to weighing & measuring him after his morning soak and before his breakfast.
Results: 2 3/4" Carapace @ 2.61oz (I need to pick up a pair of calipers for better all-around measurments)
His Carapace has grown 1/4" from last month and he's gained almost 1/2oz. He's Carapace is taller but until I get a pair of calipers it's too difficult to measure since he won't sit still. LOL!

How long have you had Maximus? Do you have pictures of when you first got him? 2.6 oz comes out to 73 grams which is pretty light for an 11 month old sulcata.

I got him from ATC back on 12/22/15, They estimated his hatch date to be 11/01/15.
At the estimated 1 Mo. 22 Days Old the day I got him, His Carapace was 2 1/2" @ 1.30oz
He's been growing upwards instead of outwards I guess you could say. ;)

Here's his pic when I got himMaximus12_22_15b.jpg

Seriously though , its sort of small , but if he seems healthy otherwise I wouldn't worry ! when he is ready , he will grow !
