I had a large breeding colony of conicus in the 1980's and 90's. My largest female eventually topped out at 35 inches. She was a great breeder and would typically drop 13 to 14 young. Most of my other adult females were in the 28 to 32 inch range and would typically have 9 to 12 young depending on the size of the female. I never consecutively bred any females, always only breeding them every other year. My largest male was right at 20 inches, with most of the other adult males between 16 and 18 inches.

I have heard reports of female conicus over 36 inches, but those individuals would be very old and very rare indeed.
