Growth stages

I was wondering how you gauge the growth of a tegu. I know right now I have a hatchling. When does he meet the criteria of being considered a juvenile, sub adult, and adult?

Tegus reach adult age/breeding age at three years old. A tegu that does not hibernate can reach three feet in one year. A tegu that does hibernate can often times be around 100 - 150 grams. So in my opinion, they would be a subadult around the age of two years, regardless of the sizes due to hibernation.
