View Full Version : Western Hognose adult size...??

04-05-2007, 12:32 PM
I have read and been told various lengths for adult westerns. Can anyone give me a more precise length for adult hoggys? I am trying to determine the setup I want to go with when I am looking for buying a house. What is the largest western that you know of?

Thanks so much,

3 feet would be a huge female. Average for a female is about 20 inches. A male is aboot 15 inches. Weight is a little easier

Male adults run anywhere from 60 to 150 grams. Females can top 350 grams but it is rare

Ok, so then what would be considered sexually mature?

I've seen one female that was REAL close the 3 feet long. I've had a couple of males that I consider large that were in the 20 to 24" range. Most of my adult females are 24 to 28 inches.
