    Size for a 1 Year Old Ball

    Hey im wondering what the average size for a one year old female ball is and what the average size for a male is. ive heard that they grow a foot a year for 3 years then they just slowly grow. i have a ball that i thought was a male but now im questioning that because he's 32 inches long and hes only 10 months

    growth rates will vary depending on the individual snake, and amount of feedings. Growth isn't going to tell you the sex of the snake, only sure way is through popping or probing by someone who is practiced in either techniques otherwise your animal can be severely injured.

    My son has a one year old male normal Ball Python and we just weighed & measured him. 35 1/2in long and 917 grams. *lol* We fed once a week the first year, then in July I've been trying to stretch out the feedings to about every 10days. So far Tiny is NOT happy with that. *lol*
