What would you class as a suitable time to remove the snakes from the RUB after feeding?
At least 24 hours. Some people recommend 48.

I feed mine in their vivs and usually give them a couple of day's peace after feeding. My burm and boa, in particular, have huge meals (less often), so it takes a while for them to digest their food as well.
