Nice chart Brian, good to see someone take some interest in records. As to if Orson's growth is good or bad is a relative question depending on environment,diet, and frequency of feeding.
Here's some past info. that may be useful by April for comparison.
hatch date measure date Wt SVL
11/24/98 4/12/99 140gms 16.2cm
11/24/98 4/12/99 196gms 16.5cm
10/28/98 4/12/99 140gms 15.2cm
The above kept as a group, and fed once a day on primarily on collards, mustard and turnip greens.
Would be interested in seeing any cornuta growth sites on the web. Weiwandt's Phd dissertation on mona rhino's has some growth info, but over a longer span, and not much use for your comparison. I have had rhino's grow faster and slower than the above info, and prefer slower as they are more fun while they are small. Once they get big, they stay that way for a long time.
