 Interested in blood python

Hi, I’m interested in a blood python..

I currently have a 19 year old ball python, so I know how to approach/handle/feed etc etc..

I’m curious about the different sorts of blood and short tail pythons.

I would start off with a juvenile snake, but I’m not sure how much room I have to spare for when it grows, so some input on the maximum sizes of these snakes would be good. I heard 6-8 feet for female blood pythons, around 30 lbs they can reach, I’m not sure if short tails are smaller, that might be more appropriate. Any thoughts are appreciated.

I’m not sure of short tails but bloods are aggressive and are really heavy and care has to be given when holding them...but their on a wayyy diffrent league then the average ball python not to mention the feeding response. Also I wouldn’t start off with a juvenile blood but all I know of short tails are their heavy like bloods. But for enclosures many people use tubs but are you plan on using a cage or tub??

Thanks...

I would use a vivarium, I’m just trying to think ahead, so I have enough room for an adult.
I think females get larger in all pythons, than males.

Why is a juvenile a bad idea?
I actually meant something from hatchling to juvenile.

Thanks

Wow now that you mention it any female python is always larger than males but I guess its because they gotta carry and support the eggs...I also didn’t know what you mean...sorry and I said getting a juvie blood isn’t a good idea because their already known to be aggressive so if you get a baby who can be nippy can grow into your smell easier than a juvie/adult.
