If the total length was 16", I wonder how long the BL would be? 13ish? I can't wait to see the actual evidence of one of these US beastsI knew somebody that claims they had a heros that was 16 inches too but I strongly suspect they included the terminal legs and antennae. It was kept at The SnakeFarm close to San Antonio. I asked "How do you know it was 16"?" He showed me the terr it was kept in, it was 16" long and said when it was against the glass it would touch each end of the terr. Another story with no pics though haha, just another claim with no real evidence unfortunately.
Not to nitpick here, but 16" is not the length between studs. It's more like 14.5" because the layout includes the stud which is 1.5". As far as my biggest pede, I think I have 2-3 S. hardwickei that are close to 8" BL. I'll try and get some pics and add them to this thread soon.Had a report from a local of a heros with a total length of 16", he is a reliable guy and a framer (carpenter) and 16" is a standard rule in framing, its the length between studs.
Well I haven't posted anything yet without being corrected, so why should that post have been the exception?Not to nitpick here, but 16" is not the length between studs.
