Yes this is the Columbian Red Tail. He is 7 years old and just over 8 feet long. At least thats what I have been told. I have not measured nor weighed him yet. I havent had a chance to do it when there were more then just Jen and myself here. The reason I didnt do any of it when we took these pics was cuz Diego and my daughters dog were on the back porch and I didnt want Russell to get too much stress the first time I handled him here at home. He did great though and I will probably get all my statistics for him sometime this weekend.

I thought males didn't get up to 9 ft? or is that just generalization and that some can get larger? Since I know the females are much larger.

Thom is it not possible he is a bit younger? Castro was measured yesterday at 6 feet and he is only 3 years old.

Well the person I got him from said that she has had him for little over 6 years and he was just under a year when she got him. As for the size. there are always exceptions to every rule. As for him being a him? lol Well I wasnt the one that sexed him but she said that he was sexed at about 2 years old. I am going to sex him myself to make sure cuz I was thinking myself that he is really big for a male.
No worries though cuz I dont breed so sex isnt relevant to me at all.
By the way did anyone click on the link for the video at the top of this post? Tell me what you think.

You mean to tell me you didn't put him around our neck?

Do you have a video of Hawn being handled? I would love to see something like that.
