I don't really weigh or measure my snakes. I's say somewhere in the four foot range is a good breeding size for females. My adults are six years old and I'd say my breeder female is five feet - this is her third year of egglaying. The male is a bit larger and they were hatched the same year.Way cool! How big are your females? I just got my pair-the male is 2x thicker than she is.
They do seem to take a bit of time to get up to breeding size - like 3 to 5 years. Of course they tend to go off feed in the Fall, so I'm sure that slows down their growth. But they do like to eat a lot around this time of year.
And Dick, I'm glad to hear that one you got from me is doing well for you. Good luck getting eggs from your other female!
