First year around 5-6' second year around 8' then they slow down but all snakes grow different so these are average growth rates

Granites are generally very small as burmese go.

I have a male triple het that is approaching 10 feet at 20 or so months. He was about 5 feet at a year old and is packing on weight nicely. Going forward I would expect this snake to be about 14 or 15 foot in a year or twos time where I cant see him getting any bigger than that.

Females will end up bigger.

They grow quicker than you can reply to a pm.

I've just made a viv out of ply its 6'*3'*2' but if my girl grows big I may have to make an 8' long. Great snakes to own

its best to build big i have a female in a 8 foot by 28inches wide and 30 inches high,a viv no bigger than 7 foot long would do for a male but keep them in smaller vivs when young then move on to bigger ones!
this is the one i put my female in!! (not finished in photo)

start in small then move on!! : victory:
