Hi Python

well to give you a short answer then for size approx 17 inches long for males and 20 inches long for females, with the proviso that individuals can vary widely from this.
As for breeding most folks do brumate before breeding but you should do a forum search for a more in depth answer to breeding questions.
As for vivarium sizes I would advise a 36 inch by 12 inch by 20 inch but a four foot would be better more room to roam and you should put in lots of climbing and hiding places they love climbing and investigating.

:How big do they get (on average)?. How large should the enclosure be? Do they need to hibernate in the winter for succesful breeding?...... Thank you in advance...
