 How big dwarfs get

My dwarf has not grown past 9’ 8" in a year...
He was reportedly 5 years old when I bought him ....last year...so 6 years old now.
He is as thick as my calf ...I am slender (175 -180 lbs) but not skinny... he weighs about 20-25lbs.

Reportedly he can get up to 12-13’ ...but I wonder ...he seems to be max’d out ...next year I will know more. He goes off feed in Oct...and will start again around April...

I was so concerned about it last year I contacted Jay Brewer (prehistoric pets) He assured me it was just a breeding season response. 6 months is a long breeding response ....lol

Great temperament.../very gentle /docile / handled regularly and allowed to free roam the house when I am home. Camps out under the couch sometimes.

Eats 4-5 lb rabbits every 2 weeks when feeding ...and easily eats 2-3 Jumbo rats in one sitting if I don’t have a rabbit.

Here’s a pic or 2....
This neighbor loves snakes !!! she is 13...no fear!


Just hanging around
