My 2013 male. Took a measurement tonight. As tame as he is I can't seem to get him to sit still on the floor. Lol. Using a string and measuring from nose to tip of tail, ~43". That seem on par? How much do you feed twice a week? Three mice? 5 mice? As much as he will eat in 5, 10... Minutes? I just fed him yesterday. Pooped today so cleaned out his cage. I put him back in his cage and then cleaned out his moss box to add new moss. He had crawled under the paper towels substrate. So as I slide the glass door back to put the moss box back in he literally flew out from under the paper towels, bolted right to the open door, and was all raised up just looking at me as if to say "where is the food". I just blinked at him. Never seen him or any snake I own move so darn fast before. It was like he just appeared from no where. The look he gave me. I see more and more every day why people say these are just a different experience when it comes to a snake.

I didn't feed him again but now I'm worried I might not be feeding him enough.

Also each day I have him it has me thinking I need to go buy a female and take a shot at breeding them a few years down the road. Never breed any of my reptiles before and this is probably a tough snake to be my first start but I can't help it. It's just so different from my kingsnakes. Dunno if I could ever get rid of any babies though. How could you part with them. Be like a bunch of cute puppies that you can't give away.
