Tanimbar BTS growth

Hi! I’ve had my bts for over a month now and despite being a Tanimbar, they're pretty friendly and don’t huff much. They’re now 3 months old and have doubled in weight since I got them (13g to 27g). I’ve read that they generally grow slower and reach no more than 17 inches/45cm but can’t seem to find more information than that. I’m wondering around how long they take to reach full size(if they do take longer to reach full size).

Thanks in advance :D

Never owned a Tanimbar but most skinks reach full size by 2 years, with a majority of the growth occurring during the first year.

Since I haven’t found much, I’m just going to update:
at 5 months, little one is now 70 grams (there is white showing between scales so may be a little overweight but looks good)

I've been reading everything I can find on tanimbars. I've seen them described as slow growing. Which doesn't really mean much if the reference doesn't state in relationship to what. The time frame I am seeing from most info I have found for adulthood is 2-3 years. Which falls inline with mb's experience.
