16.5 right now, I'll be attending a college closeby so I'll be living at home. One thing though, I hate corns and balls. Every snake newb in the world has them. I've done extensive research on snakes since I was old enough to read and listen to animal planet. I was keeping snakes at 5-6 years old. Of course I research any animal throughly before I get it to ensure I can properly care for it. I love bulls and indigos, whereast most large snakes generally don't interest me (other than burms/RTB but I'm not planning to keep them until I have the space for that size snake). Funny thing about frozen mice, I just got my package from rodent pro of 200 pinkies to feed to my 2 garters and my african clawed frog, I was originally going to have to buy and install a freezer to keep it away from the food, but persuasion worked out after all and they are in the freezer. Currently no job, I was going to get one this year but by the time I applied for it I would work 2 months then quit, not really worth it as I can't keep it through school (too many advanced classes and other responsibilities) to be able to dedicate 30 weekly hours to a job. I do however fix and resell motorcycles and flip a nice profit, only got 1 done this year and I made 400$, I have a dirt bike I had given to me up right now and I should be getting 300 from it so I can afford it yes, the most expensive cost - buying an indigo, bulls are free locally from parks...

My snakes have never escaped since I've captured this last pair. The one that escaped before was like 6 years ago, basically it was in a 5 gallon bucket away from the house, this is where I had to keep it. A storm rolled in and the bucket blew over and it got loose, I was pretty young and trying to make it work but unlucky we had a bad storm (uncommon).

I've researched temperment I know if I can tame down some super aggressive garters I can probably tame down a wild bull, which I've read and heard are pretty easy to tame down, Indigo would be gotten young and I would handle it frequently enough to tame it. Size of cage isn't a real problem. My garter cage is 60" X 24" X 28", its a nice cage and works really well. Housing a large snake isn't much of a problem.
