    Re: how big do burm balls get?

    do you mean a burmese python? all ball pythons generally stay the same size only based on sex, females can be larger.

    A burm ball? Do you mean a hybrid between burmese and ball pythons?
    I've only seen one hybrid like that(that I remember) and it was not that big yet, I'm not sure if any have been produced far enough back to have a top size.

    yeah, a burmese python and a ball python mix. i know they have been bred before. i 've seen random pictures of them here and there. i know of pictures that have been on the web for atleast a year but i've never seen a pic of one that had good size on it.

    Re: how big do burm balls get?

    Bob Clark and Mike Wilbanks had a few in Arlington and they were about the size of a large adult ball python. I'm not sure exactly how old they were....probably about a year, but they may be the people to ask about them. Since its only been done once or twice and I doubt there are any adults I guess anyone's opinion is open for discussion. I can just say what I know and the biggest ones I've seen are about the size of a large ball

    Scott wilkinson & John berry co-own a Female BurmBall, in the latest video of it, it looks to be about 6ft long, maybe weighing about 5kg. i dont think its that old. maybe 18 - 24months old.

    the burmball is a farily new project. don't think there are any true adults yet. from what ive gathered on other forums this cross is a little tricky.

    maybe email this guy about it. he has a youtube video of it and it takes up most of a CB70 tub.
