    He is a hybrid of Irian Jaya and Darwin, the two smallest carpet python species. They usually don't get as big as other carpet species and usually not more than 6+ feet. We will see. I'll keep feeding him and we will see where he ends up. Again, happy I got a bigger tank than was recommended.

    B- Im not sure Id trust that information source. Typically the largest carpets are gonna top out at 10 max and those are very rare. Most large adults are only between 6-8. My largest carpets are about 7.

    Oh good. I know many "answers" online are aimed at the most "impressive stats". But still, if Yafe is 6' at only 5 years of age, I'd expect him to put on some more growth.

    Yafe shed today. He looks amazing and bright. Here are some pics of him with his proud papa and one of him curled up.

    Do you expect Yafe's color to fade? I understand that a lot of snakes are bright as youngsters but their colors fade as they age.

    I am not sure. Shayna, my BP, faded a little with age, but not too much. I know it can happen with BP's, but I don't know how that works with Carpets. So far, he definitely isn't fading. He's still super bright and yellow. He lost most of the orange/peach tones he had on his body and face and neck, although there is still a little around his face and neck. I imagine breeding has something to do with it as well. I've seen Darwin Albino carpets who are young and to nearly as bright as Yafe. I am not sure if the IJ cross helps the yellows be more intense or not, as they are not too common that I've seen (IJ/Darwin Hybrids). I do not believe there is an IJ albino that's been found, and that's one of the reasons they cross them with Darwins.

    I hope he stays bright and intense, but will love him the same either way.
