Granite Burmese Python

Do Granite Burmese Pythons, on average, tend to stay smaller than normal Burmese pythons? I've read information where some people claim they stay smaller due to their genetics while some say they are no different than normals on average. Anybody have experience in the alleged smaller size? Thanks

Re: Granite Burmese Python

I've never heard anything about that... if you are looking for smaller Burmese pythons, Bob Clark I believe breeds dwarfs.

Re: Granite Burmese Python

Thank you for the response DJC. Oh heck no, could care less if my Burm is a monster or a midget. I have a baby Granite and was just curious. Granites weren't available some 30 years ago when I had my last Burm. Just reading up about Granites I came across some claims they are smaller.

Re: Granite Burmese Python

I love Burmese pythons regardless. I am not 100% sure if they are smaller, but most morphs are made by breeding different localities, and mutations, so I wouldn't doubt it. Really amazing snakes though, wish they got more credit, they deserve it. Though the situation in Florida has done nothing but become an unfortunate disaster for keepers of this species. In my opinion, the Lacey Act is a major overreaction by the U.S. Government, because this species couldn't survive in the wild further up then Tennessee. There is no reason why I, a resident in the north east, should have to take special precautions in order to move this species from state to state. Although I probably wouldn't be moving it that much anyway but still. Luckily the Lacey act is slowly starting to go away, so maybe we will see a return of this amazing species.

I appreciate your response, thank you.

Here in Kansas, I'm seeing a modest rise in these wonderful animals. I don't keep up on the laws but I think the Lacey Act has been rescinded or at least watered down. I know an owner of a pet shop had one he obtained out of Chicago recently.

The drama/fear the press has spun on the pytbons in Florida was initially comical. Now I just roll my eyes. The press has spun their hype to the point when it is all over in Florida earthworms will even be extinct due to as they call it the "Python Invasion".

Thanks again and I too really like Burms. I really regret having waited this long getting another. Oh well absence just made my heart grow fonder.
