If Im feeding two prey items then I wait until the snake has re-aligned its jaw and the prey item is at least 1/3rd to 1/2 way down the snakes body :)

I generally wait until the snake has finished with the first one and has started looking about and sniffing to see whether there are any more nearby :)

once theyve pushed the first one far down enough theyl reset their jaws(in our eyes,a little yawn),so anytime after that is ok..if u feed it too soon u may find that even though some snakes WILL want a 2nd pinkie,they wont take it because theyr still busy pushing the first one down..

Wait until it has gone down to the secong half of the snake and then once it has realigned its jaw and starts sniffing around then it's ready for the second one!!:2thumb:
