Fluffy is on 1 pinkie every 5-7 days, he had a problem with not feeding over chrimbo and had a regurge 2 feeds ago.

he's around 7 months old (ish) but feeding him just now he's about the same size at his thickest point as a pinkie.

Should I go up to fuzzies (worried it may be too big as I've not seen one) and worried it may be too much and trigger a regurge.

Should I feed two pinkies ? and how do you go about that, two in one session or more regular feeding.

You could try leaving the second one near where he's eating the first and see if he takes it - if he does then you could do that for a few feeds until he's slightly larger then offer just the one fuzzy. I'm like you, I don't like to feed anything larger than the snake is round

I have a corn almost the same age as Fluffy - I upped the feed to 2 pinkies once a week about 3 feeds ago and she seems fine. She hasn't got the girth for fuzzies yet as she was an awkward feeder when I first got her.
