::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?
