    Is it true that Tegu that hibernate get smaller then ones that do not hibernate. And if so how big are they expected to get. My girl is hibernating now I'm sure. And she is only 18 inches or 24. But I heard females get 3ft long. Is that still going to happen or will hibernation change her expected length and size.

    Brumation is a normal part of their life cycles with some variations between reds blues and white it won’t have any effect on her adult size

    If you want them to breed then brumation is necessary for that. other than that your tegu will grow normal just like any other tegu
