Is it normal for different T's of the same species to have varying degrees of brightness in their colors? Or do they only show vibrancy once full grown?

Typically, the colors are the best right after a molt. From there, they gradually fade a bit until the next molt. So, you might have one specimen that just molted, and another that will molt soon, and the first one will look more vibrant because of the timing.

Depends on specimen, depends on where in their molt cycle they are.

If you are comparing images on the net, then don't waste your time looking for the "right colors", there are tons of variables that go into digital imaging.

Also, don't forget about their natural iridescence. A single T can exhibit different colors depending upon the angle of light. A factor no one measures or notates in their photos.
