my guess would be 0-6 months, then 6-12 months... maybe 12-18 months, and then 18 months +?

Just guessing though -- I didn't see the other post....

it totally depends on the speed of the individual snake.. a ball python will reach adult size at 1 - 1.5 years, but i boa will come nowhere near adult size untill 2 - 4 years.. so it really depends on the species you are reffering to... a ball python would only be a hatchling for like 2 months max, then juvy, then sub adult at 7 - 8 months of age. So it all depends on the species you are working with. IMHO.

Exactly what ******** said. Its impossible to classify all snakes (why we try, I don't even know) that way. An African house snake can be an adult in 8 months, but a Boelen's Python may take 6 years. My advice? Screw the formulas and take on a species by species basis. You'll be waaayyy better off.
