This is a link to a study on Indigo size. Personally, I found the results so astounding, that I asked R. Bruce if they were possible....he said yes.

I received my first pair of couperi when they were 11 months old; they were 22" and 24". Now, at almost exactly 2 years old, they are well over 4 feet long.

I received my second pair when they were 8 months old, and about 18". I feed them only about every 5-7 days, but pretty much however much they'll eat at that time. Now, they are exactly a year old, and they are ~29 to 30".......That's a foot of growth, in 4 months!

Which reminds me - I've got to go clean cages and defrost some critters.....

All the best!
Chris
