  1. Hey guys, i have a yearly Diamond Python and i was just wondering how old will she be when she is fully grown..... and is a 5' x 3' x 2' enclosure large enough for her when she is fully grown?

    thanks, Rebecca

    snakes like many other reptiles never stop growing for as long as they live, so it is hard to tell when they are fully grown but as their growth rate slows down generally they can be around 2.5m or somewhere around there... depending on the conditions provided...
    as for the enclosure size someone else will have to inform you cause i am not 100% sure
    hope this helps
