Well, that is a great question, but a hard one to answer. The reason being is that due to the various localities of alterna, some from one area grow to a certain size and length, while others from another area may not grow as big.

That is just one factor to consider.

I think focus around a common length and weight of what breeders have experienced, and go from there. I haven't bred alterna, but for females, I think 3 feet may be a good starting point?
