Question Carpet Python subspecies

I recently obtained a carpet python sold to me as a Queensland carpet. I'm assuming Queensland pertains to the locality. Would that make it a coastal carpet? I'd like to know what subspecies it is to know what size to expect from it.

Re: Carpet Python subspecies

Yes a Queensland carpet is a specific sub locality of the coastal. Nice snakes and a good sized female could approach 9'. Wouldn't expect it to get bigger than that but there are outliers.
0.1 B imperator, 1.0 M spilota harrisoni, 1.0 C hortulanus, 2.1 P reticulatus (Madu locality), 1.1 S amethystine, 1.1 L olivaceous, 1.0 C angulifer, 1.0 Z persicus, 0.1 P regius, 0.1 N natrix, 0.1 E climacophora, 1.0 P obsoletus, 0.1 L geluta nigrtia, 1.0 P catenifer sayi, 1.0 T lepidus

Re: Carpet Python subspecies

You will find three of the sub-species in Queensland (mcdowelli, cheynei and metcalfei), so "Queensland carpet" ???
