Hi,

From the picture, the snake looks much smaller than 7 feet, and 25 pounds. I have a bci that size, and when I hold her (I am five foot three and 105 pounds) she is about as thick as two maybe two and a half of my arms (girth wise), so either it is a bad picture (for reference), the girl in the picture is not as petite as she looks, or the snake is not 25 pounds.

Saying this, it is more common to have a dum around 5-6 feet, than 6-7 feet, so I do not use length to determine whether a female is "big" enough to breed. I look for the age of the snake and the girth of the snake. P.S. If she is gravid, you will know there is no mistaking it!

Thanks,
