Just realised you also asked for weight. Just ordered a small set of scales and a few other things off eBay (been busy working so not really had the time to go the shops to get a set) so not sure just yet, should be here in a day or two.

But yeah. Thanks for the advice =)

No problem, once you start moving them up prey sizes they grow like mad

To be honest, if she is looking good and healthy and not constantly looking for food, the fact that males are supposed to be a tad bigger than female, I wouldn't stress too much
I'm pretty sure that females grow bigger than the males I bought two corns at the same and the male is half the size of the female

With corns the sex of the snake doesn't make all that much difference to their size, males can be just as big as females, it's all to do with feeding and how they grow, they all grow differently with some quicker than others, also if you have a snake which has come from a pairing of adults of a good size - 4 to 5 foot or over then there is a good chance the resulting babies will be the same size.

Ok just a quick opinion and comment. Your snake looks fine for her age some snakes tend to grow alot slower than others it all depends on whether you want to force them on growthwise or not. I used to feed my hatchling a large pinkie at that age once every 7 -9 days and although she was slow to gain real length for a while she made a full 5" 1/2 foot at adulthood and lived to be 15 years of age I currently have four corns aged between 6 months and 3 years and the 3 year old is only 15 inches but this is due to her being stunted as she is a surviving twin her twin sister unfortunately didnt make it at all. the other are all between her length and probably 3 foot. As long as your snake has good weight and is shedding etc fine and she is not lookin for more food I would let her grow at her own weight and not worry she isnt going to make fullsize as she will in her own time and enjoy watching her grow and her colours develop.
AilsaM i can honestly say Dakota is a stunning snake infact all of yours are and i do love her morph I also thought your litle hoggie was especially sweet but i do have a soft spot for hoggies too
