    I have never heard of any species of kingsnake even close to that size! 6 ft is about the top of the scale.
    And those are rare,

    I must try and measure Storm, she is definitely 5f or even more. The only problem is she is not friendly and I will most probably get tacked in the process. But you made me curious now.;)

    Will it be ok to pin her down for this, I hate rough handling? I suppose it will be ok this once but she is sure going to hate me for some time.:eek:

    The head so that she does not bite me.;) Except this time her head will be pinned to the floor for measuring.

    Quite.
    Where did you see this and what species was it? The longest I have ever heard of was 82 inches for a chain king.

    And Linky to measure you can just use a peice of string and run it along the body.

    I did try that when I saw this thread the first time. She moved too fast I couldn't get it right and believe me I tried. It will not be so easy in her cage because she is always in one of the hides.

    That is a brilliant program! I wish I could use it immediately but not one of my pictures has something of a know size in it.

    I'll give the results Monday, thanks Rich!
