you should NOT feed it anything 1.5 times the size of its girth, it is the maximum that it can take but not the reccomended food size.it all depends on the size of the snake, you should feed a mouse that is 1.5 time the size of the girth of the snake at its fattest point,
Tiggers advice is fine no need to correct him.rossthedon said:you should NOT feed it anything 1.5 times the size of its girth, it is the maximum that it can take but not the reccomended food size.
more smaller items are better than 1 large with the odd bigger item for vareity, but not 1 and a half times the girth of the snake, this is just TOO big (max is usually about 1 and a 3rd the girth)
sorry for correcting you tigger
disagree there and I think so would most people here. Rats are better nutritionally for snakes than mice... chances are you just fed to much to foten I think?boshogg said:dont feed your corns rats!! there to fatty for them and you will end up with obese corn like my sid when i first rescued him, if anything go for Jumbo mice and feed two!!
so you are saying we should be feeding our snakes items that are 1.5 times thicker than the girthiest part of our snakes?Tiggers advice is fine no need to correct him.
