Certainly they can be dumped at any size.
But if you think that does'nt matter you could'nt be more wrong.
If you dump a 16 foot 150lb Burm chances are unless there is a big bull gator nearby that snake will be the baddest sob in that neck of the woods.
If, however, you dump a hatchling or a juvenile that snake may not make to the next day.
In the first scenario you have a large established animal that just needs to find shelter. She could hide and chill for 2 years and probably be okay.
The second scenario you have a nice fat piece of spaggheti that every predator in the glades can and will eat.
I have said before, less than 1% of crocodilians ever reach adulthood. I have to think big pythons are the same. Why else would they lay 40-50 eggs. D.C.
