So, I have a small colony of Indian Stars, and I would like to know when they will start to be of breeding size. I have read that for females they are around 900 grams, and for males to be around half that. I have a frisky male that has been trying to get down since he was about 250 g, and now he is 316 g. I also have another male that is 745 g. I am guessing he is the one who got my 1350 g female pregnant.

I also have three females that are between five and six inches long, and weight between 500 and 525 g. So I am not sure how much longer until they are capable. They have grown a lot in weight and size since I acquired them last year.

Thanks for any help

It may be that the smaller male is 'practicing'.
I would also guess your larger male mounting your 1350g female is how she became gravid. As for the 5-6in females, they have about another year (at the very least) or two before hitting sexual maturity.
