My Bemba's are 2-3 inches and a year and a half old. They are just starting to breed. I think they are small compared to the Dubs they grew up with.

they should be around 3' at this age. my males were 4.5-5' in the end but females stayed smaller around 3-3.5. As usual with Bembas they started breeding early which was not helpful for their (females) growth
