I have searched for this but couldn't find it, maybe I'm just a bad search. But how long does it take a ball python to grow to full-size

Depends on many factors such as sex, feeding regime, husbandry and genetics.

My smallest female has just matured at 3 years and 3 feet long, but her small size is down to genetics - both her parents were particularly small adults.

I'd say on average, with environmental conditions being optimal, between 1.5 and 3 years.

from what i heard, they grow an average rate of about a foot a year for three years until they reach sexual maturity.
