Hey JY
Wow, Brad Bauserman...He goes back a good ways with the BHPs. Back when keepers didn't know that feeding them like most other ambush predators would kill them.

Yes, BHPs are bigger than chondros but, really shouldn't be any bigger than a 7 foot carpet.

I made my statement because I consistently hear other keepers say that BHPs are big animals and they're really not. Yes, they can get very big on an overfed diet but, that's any 7/8 foot snake really.

Here is a large healthy adult in the wild. This is what they should look like in captivity.



Cheers,
D
