    That's a pretty big snake. I'm thinking that the guy's hand is larger than average and most of the snake is hidden behind his arm. Its a heavy bodied species.

    They can really run the gambit when it comes to size. You're looking at an average of 5-6 feet probably for most adults. Some animals max out a little smaller, others undoubtedly attain a much larger size. My adults for the red project are right around that, females topping out at 5-5.5ft and males maxing in the 6-6.5ft range. A lot of the larger bulls out there seem to come from texas localities/stock - kingsville reds and the infamous highway 277 bulls. I don't have any pictures of my red adults with something for size reference but here are a couple generic yellows I bred before reducing my sayi project to focus more on the red stuff. They were around 4 years old when I took the pictures.

    I thought that females got bigger than males? Or are Bulls diffrent? Very pretty snakes you've got there I really like the orange and white hatchlings in the first photo you have.

    My 4 y/o female bull is somewhere between 7-8' and my 3 y/o male is a tad over 6'. The female is much larger in girth too.

    Not all that uncommon for male colubrids to get larger than females. On average, Pituophis males are larger than their female counterparts. The same goes for the Drymarchon genus with most of the real monster sized animals typically being male. The orange and white ones are red albino sayi, some of my more popular critters.
