Hi Sybella! :)

My female is 59 inches...one inch shy of 5 feet. My male is shorter, about 4-4 1/2 feet, and a lot smaller all over.

Sounds like they are almost ready. I would probably wait another year before attempting to breed them, as this would likely give you better results. Also, if they are not displaying courtship behavior by now, they are unlikely to produce this year anyway.

Your female is nearly 7 feet? I thought 6 feet was considered full grown...they get bigger?

I haven't measured them in some time, but the female reminds of a fire hose, and still continues to grow. 1800mm (~6ft) can generally be considered "full grown", however, keep in mind that this species can reach lengths in excess of 2700mm (~9ft), though that is certainly not the norm.

Best,

~TE
