    14ft is the largest on record, but I can't see many of them getting that big.

    A freind of mine like pumping food into his snakes his coasta; grow to 9.5 feet in 13 months...I wouldnt sure gest doing that as it shortens the life span of the animals...I would say 5-6 foot if reasonable

    Just out of interest thought i'd let you guys know the growth rate of my bredli... They are now about 2 years old, so this was their second year of growth.
    Jan 31 2003 #1 302 grams #2 425 grams
    Now #1 915 grams #2 950 grams
    i was pretty suprised by that! i dont have reliable length measurements, but i would guess they've gone from about 110/120 to something around 150cm. they were fed about every 2 weeks, less in winter.

    What's the easiest way of measuring the length of a snake? Nothing I've tried has really been accurate.
