ya they always grow, maybe slow. But they never stop growing........but you can count on a 4-6 ft animal....No matter how long it takes for them to get there. Get them atleast a 4ft cage when they get bigger......and 5 months? My baby is 5 months and she is on small rats......try and switch. When you switch to rats you will notice her growing "faster"..........rats are more nutricious (sp??)

You can count on a 3.5 - 4.5 ft animal. As you can tell from some other recent threads, a 6ft bp is pretty rare.

maybe, but not entirely all that rare. I've been hearing more and more about 6ft BP's.....And as they never quit growing......... You never know how long "big" each individual snake can get up to......so how about a 3.5----6ft animal.............

yeah, I hear about 6 foot balls all the time too. Then when the owner arrives at the vet hospital and we measure the snake it's often around 40 inches long.

They never stop growing, even if it's only a fraction of an inch per month. The most staggering growth is in the first 4 years. When they are 4, they are probably 99% of the total length they will ever achieve. Of course, some will surprise you.
