AbstractMale growth is best described by a von Bertalanffy growth model and female growth by a logistic growth model. This sexual dimorphism is correlated with greater relative surface activity and lower survivorship of juvenile males when compared to juvenile females. Early-hatching (first clutch) offspring exhibit greater body size and survivorship compared to late-hatching (second clutch) offspring. (Abstract shortened with permission of author.)
