Does anyone have (or know of) statistics on reorded clutch sizes based upon age/size/weight of Cal Kings in captivity?

I know it is going to be variable, but I imagine (note word imagine) a 54" female that is in her fourth or fith season will likely lay more eggs than a 36" female in her first season.

I think it would be interesting to see how it varies, how much previous breeding impacts that (IE will a 48 inch female being bred for the first time clutch signifigantly smaller than a 48 inch female being bred for the third time) etc.

Weight records would also be interesting, with respect to obese or underweight snakes and their clutch sizes.

I know there is individual female variance, but I imagine there would be a trend?
