Nice... When you move up to fuzzies they really start to grow nicely, pinkes don't have as good nutrition in them...

Believe me they don't have grow once you get them on fluffs/fuzzies, mine took her first fluff at 28g in weight and 7 months old, at 100g in weight and a year old she took her first small mouse, she's now 259g in weight and taking a medium mouse once a week & she'll be 2 years old in January, just to give you an idea of how quick they grown but all snakes are different but it's still great seeing them growing.

I took some photos after I fed him earlier on today. Sorry the quality is not to good but you can make out the middle part of his body where the pinky is. Should it be making more of bump than that.?





I don't want to move him up food sizes to make him grow quicker. I'm more concerned the pinkies are a bit small & that I am under feeding him.

Also I want to say thank you for every ones replies. I do appreciate the advice that you're all giving me.

Looking at the pics and the feeding bump I would keep him on pinkies until you hardly notice a bump at all and then move him up to fluffs.

The second looks a bit more bumpy as I think he was in the middle of a squeeze.

Well personally, and this is just my opinion, as said I would continue with the pinkies until there hardly any bump showing, how much does he weigh?

I'm not sure how much he weighs he is just over 14" in length.
I need to get some more scales, the ones I have are not working properly.

If you think from the picture he should still be on pinkies I will get more of them at the weekend. I might get a couple of fuzzies too just to see the size of them. Because if they are too big they will always keep in the freezer until he is big enough to eat them.

My new corn is about 34cms long and weighs 12grams, I was told she is 7 months but I very much doubt it as she is teeny tiny, peaches is on 2 small pinkies every 7 days, she does fine with this and has 2 noticeable bulges after feeding,

Try 2 pinkies and see how you get on, you don't want to try something too big and risk a regurge... Good luck
