    my 4 month old male argentine black and white tegu has gone down for hibernation but I’m worried that this will make him a smaller adult. Is this true? Or will he end up the same size as if he didn’t go down for hibernation? Thank you!

    My blue did the same. They will go through growth spurts and catch up eventually. It doesn't stunt their growth, they just get to full size a little slower.
