Ive had this guy for about 6 or 7 months now. Every place ive read say they get around 4 to 5 inches. My male keeps growing, he was around 5 inches when i got him. hes now pusing 7 inches and weighs a little over 32 grams. He also keeps getting lighter. i was just wondering if this is normal?

There seems to be a size variance in pictus....I have seen males get a lot larger than that one and then I have seen males get about half the size and never get any larger for there whole life. I am not sure why but I am guessing there might be a regional difference from where they originate from in Madagascar?? The coloration is natural he will probably continue to lighten up a bit till hes done growing. None the less he is nice healthy looking pictus.
