:My black is somewhere in the neighborhood of 5.5 feet, but I use the very scientific method of holding him up by the tail (not the very very tail, of course) and seeing if he's longer than I am :P. Is there a better way? Of course, you know, his parents were 13 feet long (hey, that's what I was told).
I measure my snakes by laying them on a piece of foam from and old couch cushion and then gently laying a piece of glass or plexiglass over. Then I take
a marker and trace the length of the snake on the glass. You can then lay a piece of wire or string on the tracing and measure the string
This process will take 2 people one to trace and one to gently hold the glass down to keep the snake from moving.
