    :?

    This may have been answered in another post---- but I was unable to find it
    What age(in months) is a hatchling considered a juvenile?& what is the approx. length at that age???

    What age is a juvenile considered an adult?





    :( :mrgreen:

    Good question. I've never really thought about the difference between hatchling and juvenile. I have always determined adult to mean they have reached sexual maturity, but that age range varies from species to species as I would assume length would as well. I would imagine that a juvenile snake would be somewhere between adult and hatchling in size and age (what I mean by that is the juvenile stage would begin about the midpoint between the two). Hopefully someone else has a more empirical answer for you, I'd really like to know myself.

    Well, I usually consider "Juvenile" to be anything under breeding size and at had at least 6 meals. Subadult I consider of breeding size (3-4ft or more), but still too young to safely breed. Once they are of both a breedable age & size, I consider them adult.

    Humans are still considered "Juveniles" until they're 18. :)
