You are talking about animals that eat once every few weeks depending on the size of the animal and itís meal. If it is a big snake and a big meal it could well be over a month until it eats again. Most small lizards are active daily/nightly hunters. One of the reasons being they have shorter life spans (Torts for example grow very slow because they can live up to 100 years). So they need to get a jump-start on life in order to pass on their genes as much as they can. 12 months is a reasonable and healthy period for a crested gecko to reach adult size. That time period can vary slightly between individuals, but greatly between species.
