Question Finding Out Age?

I got Montey three years ago from a pet store (way before I knew anything about the herp world and about breeders) and I got Chaos as a rescue case from the same pet store about a month ago.

Neither of which are babies. Montey was fairly large when I got her. Not nearly as large as she is now. But fairly. And Chaos is very long and thin.

I have NO IDEA how old they are. And was wondering if there's any way of figuring out their age.

Cut it in half and count the rings. Oh wait, that's trees.... sorry.

I wish there were an easy way to tell, because I'd like to know how old my corns are. Unfortunately, this is impossible.

My Spotted is just under 3 feet. She's the approx. width of a full grown mouse.

Your spotted is probably between 1.5 & 2 years old.

Yeah, and when I got her she was NOT as tiny as the babies I've seen. If I had to guess, I'd say she's 4 years old...
