As title states. Males bristles develop at what age and size approx. I have 4 juveniles at approx 4cm tip to tail so I'm wondering at roughly what age or size. TYIA Cheers Hus.

It can vary between individual males, at 4-5cms you may start noticing 2 small bristles on the centre of the top lip.

I'm assuming they are commons as there are some, L181's for example, where females have small bristles on the lips.
