It is possible. It took around 1.5 years to reach the mid 50's for most of our breeders (which are all between 2-4 years old). However we do have a female that favored fruit and would not eat as many crix. It took over 2 years for her to hit the 50 mark. She is also smaller then the others. Crested geckos will hit maturity at 1 year however they still continue to grow a bit.
There is also something else to put into consideration and that is locality. Perhaps there is a size difference between populations. I have seen some small crested geckos so this might be factored into the reasoning too. Although I think diet is the major cause. Just some food for thought. -Mike
