Thanks! And if you get one, you won't regret it! heh heh okay, I know I'm not helping lol
Depends on if you're getting pure super dwarf, and where you're getting them from (some breeders have smaller lines than others). Anything with a morph in it is not pure SD because apparently there are no morphs in SD's, so they may have the potential to be slightly larger because they are mixed with mainlands or locality dwarves.
Generally though most that you'll see will be around 5-6', with some of the really small ones being even as small as 4' (I've heard of one) but those are rare. They're lean like regular retics though so they are really not heavy or girthy. I haven't weighed this guy, but I'd guess him to be maybe at roughly about 1000 grams (but I'm terrible at weight guessing lol)
Lol! That size is totally manageable. I really wouldn't mind if it was a little on the larger side. 7-10 feet would still be okay. But an SD sounds like the perfect size for my snake room. Now I want one even more...*runs off to look at SD's for sale*

Beautiful! I share your opinion, retics are amazing, big or small, but I would be terrified to handle a mainland on my own. With the SDs, you still get that amazing retic pattern without the terror. haha.
What is their temperament like? I Know very little about them, but I would like to learn because someday, many years from now, I would very seriously consider one, they are just too pretty, and I would like a "large" constrictor that is not too large....
They tend to be pretty laid back for the most part. My female is a bit more high strung than my male but I've figured her out and she hasn't tagged me in a long time. My pair share the same sire and he's a little over 4' long. The two females they were bred off are right at around 5' long. They are a very manageable size. My pair isn't even a year old yet but they are both around 3'. I feed quite a bit and they still are pretty small. They are very smart and inquisitive. Totally opposite of ball pythons in my opinion which is why I love them. I just have one pair because I think they are very neat and have always been fascinated by them. Didn't mean to hijack Alexa Congrats again.
