as a new owner of a corn snake I have made a miss calculation in feeding my adult corn snake I now know that you are only supposed to feed him once a week and not twice! does anyone know how to get his weight back down?
to start with reduce his food size by one size (eg if ya feed large reduce to medium), also, ya need to start an exercise program for your snake, start with giving your snake a bath evry 10 days, allow snake to swim around in the water,
Only thing is dont expect miracles, it can be a length process.
i currently have a very overweight snake and this is the advice i have been given.
1) they're fed every 10days -3 weeks though do it gradually not an instant cut.
2) again introduce gradually but a feed when they look for it as a lot of mine pace the vivs nose to glass when they WANT food and i've always used this method with all my snakes and not one has ever been underweight.
Swimming in a shallow bath is also great exercise for them but obviously supervise them all the time they're in water.
