:All I have seen and read suggest that black milks need to between 4 and 5 feet to breed (larger is better).

It's difficult to get good information about this species.
My snake were '01 babies. The male is about 46 inches, the female is just over three feet. Many sources state that most milks can breed at eighteen months, but I don't think the female will be four feet by next winter. What do you think? Wait until they're three years old?
