[ noun ] the rate of increase in size per unit time
Used in print(Clifford H. Pope, The Giant Snakes....)
Another approach is to estimate from the rate_of_growth and the smallest size at maturity .
size at which life is started and at which sexual maturity is reached ; time required to reach maturity ; rate_of_growth both before and after this crucial stage ; and maximum length , with confirmation or amplification of Oliver 's figures .
I have little information on the anaconda 's rate_of_growth .
