Awww! I hope he stays safe too. Is that a normal size for that species at 18 months or are they naturally smaller in the wild?

i think he's a little larger than if he were never in the house .... he only hibernated for 2 months , he was in the house for the rest of the winter being fed ....
this one here was never in the house since he hatched and he's 8-10yrs old in this pic
