Well, it's Day 14 in the Viv house for Stevie the Carolina corn

and I've been feeding him every 5 days with one pinky. Yesterday he was really whippy, and this morning, really unsettled to be handled. Fed him his pinky at 4pm, and he wolfed it down ~ bit worried he's starving now!

Anyhooooo, I can see he's grown already, and as we're about to gut the lounge, and incorporate a viv, was wondering whats the smallest he should be in when he's a man snake!

Any advice re: feeding, viv sizes, etc gladly received :snake:

minimum 3x2x2 foot for an adult
4x2x2 would be better if you have room.

Cant really advise on feeding as I don't know how old or how big it is.
Just see if he has a lump in his belly for 1-2 days after feeding, if the lump isn't noticeable after just a few hours then up the food size.

The retailer said he was about 4 months old , he's about 15 inches long now, he shed last wednesday (if that helps, probably not)

After I fed him last week, he slept for ages, now he's zooming round, is this a sign of hunger/hunting?

when and what did you last feed him?
At that age i'd feed him a pinky or fuzzy every 5-7 days.
