Hey there everyone, first post here!

I acquired my first ever A. Gigas yesterday, and when I ordered him, I asked to get a younger one. Now I'm not sure if they got a younger one or just a smaller one, but as of now he's around 20 CM. Is there any way to tell if he's already fully mature? I've seen multiple sites saying different things, like it could take one anywhere from 1-5 years to fully mature. I've already emailed the place I bought him from to see if they have any ideas, but I was wondering if anyone here had any ideas about my Sheo (his name I gave him). I just want to know if I should expect him to molt again.

Thanks!

I hate to sound wishy-washy, but, the answer is a "maybe". A. gigas adults range in size from about 15-32cm. The only way to tell for certain is to witness mating. Then you know you have an adult. If you see a molt, then you know yours was not an adult when you got it.
