If you look up caresheets for these critters (I highly recommend Melissa Kaplan's page: http://www.anapsid.org/), they will generally get up to 12-13 feet on average. Dwarf compared to normal retics, but still a pretty big snake.

I fialed to see any care sheets on the speicies in question there at Ms. Kaplan's site. Could you post a direct link to that page please?

I wonder if that care sheet is better than that of hers dedicated to the cornsnake??? I did not realize her expertise had been extended to dwarf retics, now.

Sorry ... should read as: "I failed to see any . . ."

Darin, thou shalt not mock the all encompassing knowledge of the mightly Kraplan.
You should now be feeling the hairs on your neck standing on end as the lightning homes in on you.
Retic, cornsnake, whats the difference? None of us are worthy to keep any of them.

Thus concludes your daily Kraplan indoctrination.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

Dwarfs can be as small as 6ft- SuperDwarfs, mid-sized kayaudi's up to 9ft, and jampea's reaching up to 16ft. Bali's in the 12-16ft range and not enough is known about selayer's to know for sure. Remember c.b.b. in these dwarf retics have proven to grow about 2X the size of imports!
