There really must be something in the water as all my snakes have had major growth spurts.. and Ive triple checked the measurements and before anyone asks Im not measuring the sloughed skin.. been using the Snakemeasurer.

Anyway... one of my corns was 2ft 3 last month.. and is 2ft 7 this month. My female speckled king was 3ft 10 last month and is now 4ft 3.. and the biggest of all is my big cali king. He was 2ft 9 last month and is now 3ft 4.. :shock: Anyone else having their snakes grow really quickly?

Ive had my royal 3 weeks and he's grown so much in that time, dont weigh or measure though. Should I just use kitchen scales to weigh?

I dont measure lengths, just weights, and my little royal( the one that peed on you :lol: ) has grown an awful lot since I got her. She was a teeny tiny 57g last month, she now weighs 100g, she has noticebly grown in girth and length, and Im sooooo chuffed with her progress :D :lol: :lol:

Also, Raven my mexi black has had a massive growth spurt. I havent weighed her because she wont sit still for long enough but you can just tell...she had only just been put upto fuzzies when I got her, shes now eating 2-3 rat pups a sitting, and is very chunky :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'll let you know in a few months about my blues....I expect them to grow like weeds, if my Taiwan was anything to go by!!!

My baby corns are growing like that too, swear they are double what they were a month ago. My leucies seem to be doing the same thing too, didn't seem to be doing much of anything, then all of sudden.... Whoooosh, they're off... Don't have actual measurements, but guestimate by the length of the tanks they are in and they go quite a bit further around the frame than what did few weeks back...
