From the research I have done they get big and don't always have a great attitude. The attitude wasn't what would bother me - it's having a snake that is well over twice my height with a attitude. lol

They are lovely looking snakes though and if they were smaller I would have the pair they have at the local pet shop by now.

I would do abit more research, majority of amethistina scrubs max out out 12ft. depending on the localities some dont even get past 8ft.
But if were talking about all speices of scrub pythons then they arent that big to be honst, morelia nauta rarely exceed 6ft.

WC scrubs are very fast and nasty but captive bred ones are very docile and calm. they are great to handle and rather climb away than hold there ground and bite
