albino burmese python not growing help!

hi!

i have an albino burmese python and she is 27 inches.
when i got her she was 23 inches.
she is 10 months old.

i understand that she should have grown about 7 feet in one year however she has only grown 4 inches in her first year.

the reptile store i got her from told me she was snappy (had attitude) and that she would grow 7 feet in one year.

she has absolutely no attitude and has only snapped twice, and has not grown.

i feed her the appropriate size mouse every 5-7 days and she always eats with no problem. she never regurgitates or anything un-ordinary. basically she is very healthy.

the only strange behavior i have noticed is that she continues to attempt escape from her terrarium even after she is fed and would not regurgitate after being handled right after feeding.

if anyone can help me make sense of all this all comments would be appreciated and helpful =)

Thank you.

zsazsa
