    Re: Adult Male Burm Size?

    Just barely 10'. He has about a foot of tail wrapped behind my leg. I feel this is a good representation of his size but like you mentioned of videos, the can look different depending on the angles. Like this was just at Christmas and he looks much smaller in these imo.

    What has been his feeding schedule since you’ve had him?

    I don't keep a to the day schedule but it's been about every 7-10 days depending how big a meal. He always skips when he's getting ready to shed like he currently is. I haven't updated in forever but I had a post here sharing his growth when I got him as a hatchling. I think the post is just "new leucistic baby".

    A buddy of mine used to have a large breeder male Burmese. At around 15 years old the snake weighed 250 pounds and was around 8 inches in diameter at midbody. Length was uncertain; my buddy said 20 feet, but I thought it was closer to 18. I must look around and see if I have any pictures.

    If he had a 20ft, 250lb male he should submit it to the record books because thats an absolute HOG, the largest male Ive heard of was 15ft, 160lbs.Not saying it's impossible though, anything can happen with enough food.

    Must have been a Female and he never had it properly Sexed because that would be a Guinness world record for a male.

    Still if a 10' male burm is too big - you may want to try something like a male half (50%) dwarf Burm. Yes they are much harder to find - but usually their temperament is more similar to a mainland burm. And they will usually grow to about 6-7.5 feet long.

    Or you might want to look into the 50% super dwarf retics. Note - that retics are much more slimmer/and lighter than burms in their build, at the same length.

    I won't guarantee the length, but the snake was a breeder male, so the sex is right. Weight is hearsay, but my buddy said the snake was put on scales and weighed 250 pounds. I believe it, because my buddy had me and 3 other guys help move that snake a few times. He was as tame a Burmese as you could ask for, but it was all we could do to handle him.

    Snake died over 15 years ago, so there is no way to submit it to the record books now, as far as I know.

    Still looking through my photo files for a picture.
