:the big guys tail is around 5 inches long and......her tail is a tiny litttle stub relative to the big guys hers is around 2 inches long

:Sounds like you have them sexed correctly then. He must just be a big boy!

:I was just wondering if the female would have a final growth spurt in her third year or maybe later in this one seems she still has a bit of growing to do

:I was curious if mine were ever going to start growing then suddenly she took off. She was around 15 inches long at the time. Where she used to eat a f/t hopper and then hiss and strike at anything else, suddenly she was chasing my hand around the cage looking for another.

:She tips the scales at around 240 grams now, but would easily try to eat 100 grams worth of mice in one feeding if I let her. She is a pig. I try to "restrict" her to 35-40 grams of mice per feeding (3x per month).


yeah my females a real pig too she will eat anything I can feed the female alongside the male as he wont eat unscented mice but I have to take her out to let the male eat in peace because she pounces on his meals.
