    Hi! I am new here so I'm not sure if this is the right place to post or not, I'm a bit confused!
    I just joined as I wanted to ask a question or get some advice really, we have an Indian star and he is 18 months old, he eats and poos well, seems very healthy but I am a little concerned he is too small after seeing pictures of other indian starts elsewhere on the internet. Like I said, he is behaving fine so if I hadn't of seen other pictures I would of never been worried. We got him off a breeder as a hatching so have had him all his life, but unfortunately the breeder told us to put him in a tortoise table as did some other people in a group on social media and then I found out that they were more than often kept in vivariums so we bought one if those and he is in much warmer conditions now as obviously he was before and had the lights but the heat and humidity could escape. Anyway I just wondered if anyone could tell me the correct weight and size for an 18 month old indian star or is there a growth chart or anything to roughly follow? Our daughter absolutely loves him as do we and I would hate for anything to be wrong with him but surely if there was he wouldn't be behaving normally and eating and pooping? Thank you

    I have asked similar questions and got different answers. I too think one of mine is small. Sorry I don’t have a better answer.
