There won't be any breeding of my boys any time soon. I only have one female who is even close to them in age and size. Right now she only is a year and a half old and 112 grams. The boys will just have to wait for her.
Actually, the snow will have to wait even longer. The female I want to breed him to is an amel that hatched this August. (her parents were a snow and a charcoal, so I'm hoping to get some snows from breeding them).
I a little concerned that the lavender motley is getting a little fat, I'm going to take them to 30 grams of food once every two weeks and see how they do.

I think I would probably use the 3 or 4 year mark..
I respect your points, except comparing these animals to a 12 year old boy. There are no social morals in the animal kingdom. Size, not age, determines when a corn snake of either gender is ready to breed. If you don't brumate the first two years and power feed, you can have some corns at large adult size in two years. I don't recommend it, just pointing it out/being an Internet stickler.
