    Very handsome snake! Glad he knows his way around a gym too.

    Re: Are you ready for kevin?

    Yeah Bro, Kevin looks awesome! He’s much larger than S’ven, my male Bredli, who’s two years older. You know I feed my snakes pretty liberally so he’s definitely not starvin. It just shows the diversity of the species.

    Yes,

    That's for sure Zig, I fed my retic very lightly and he just grew and grew. So much for the high percentage SD X Dwarf blood with very little mainland and being a male to boot. Had he not been a complete jackass I'd have probably not minded his end size but that experience is in the never again category.

    I'm not so sure your Bredli is done growing.

    I'm wondering if you let him ride without food for a few months over the winter if his energy will re-channel into growth.

    Thank you.

    Is this the same Bill S from Reptile Insider?

    If so, it has been years.

    Size

    It has been my experience with 2 of my the carpets, the late Jewel, and Kevin, shown here, that growth seems to come a bit later in life.

    Kevin is a September 2017 Bredli. He'll be 5 years old this fall and his length and weight are increasing a lot. I'm actually blown away by the density. He is starting to rival my almost 10 year old boa constrictor. I didn't expect that.



    I wanted to get some pictures of his length for folks that follow this thread. He's on a 10-12 foot span here. He's certainly not as long as Jewel was before she passed but Jewel grew a lot after she was 5 years old.




    I think Kevin may actually hit 8 feet in the next couple of years.






    That's it for now.

    His build reminds me of my 7' male yellow-mix rat snakes- (they're about 14 years old now). Kevin's a beauty- & I agree, many snakes take a while to really "body-build"- that's why I've always favored not breeding females until they're at least 4+ years old too, so they have the best size to handle it.
