    Cheers rich, I love the natural retic morph as much as some fancy ones tbf. More than that his personality has already created a special bond for me, him and Thor are true pets.

    Nice lump Saturday after a small rat:-)


    I'm a little worried he is gonna be too small, I'm hoping he hits 10ft'ish... I keep seeing SD retics 6-7ft and skinny like a 5ft carpet and 3-4yrs old. I'm guessing he should bulk out as he gets older tho... Bigger than 12' would be an issue for me too tho lol!

    I'm not a Retic guy, but I am aware of someone in my state who was once possibly the largest breeder in the country and he used to have estimates of size based on dwarf/sd percentage, male or female, feed schedule on his website which is now down for rebuilding......you could always send him a message on Facebook and he's pretty friendly from what I can remember of talking to him years ago. He's mainly into Monitors now but I think it would be worth your time to get in contact with him and ask. Tell him what you have and he'll probably give you a very good estimate. Kris is the name I believe.

    Me personally? Bigger the better. Just keep in mind you'll be safe due to the fact that you don't have a mainland Tiger female though.....I swear they are the largest ones I see consistently online.

    Thanks allot pal, unfortunately I don't use Facebook... Maybe I could use my missus account later tho.
    My boas are a decent size now at 7' and 10-11lb, he is hopefully gonna surpass them, don't get me wrong I love him to death it's just after hunting for a SD I'm thinking maybe I should have gone pure dwarf, maybe selayer.
    We will see, he is already putting on good weight with me, maybe he will be a monster yet.

    Cheers pal I've watched his videos, subbed to reach out reptiles.
    My guy isn't pure tho, I was told 75% SD 25% dwarf selayer 100% het genetic stripe.
    Selayer males can get 12-14' pure kalatoa 5-8' so it's a grey area.
    Hopefully he is on the larger side:-)
