There is no exact formula to use when feeding your snake. You should see a noticeable lump when he eats. Some people feed them every 5 days some every 7. Over seas they tend to think our snakes here in the US are overfed, but I like to see plump healthy snakes without getting them obese! While the snake is growing they will just add size, but once they are adult size, they can be over fed, and get fat deposits, especially if they aren't being bred. I think a fair statement would be to feed at least one, perhaps two rodents of proper size each week. I try to make a substantial bulge in the snake at each meal, but not stuff them.

Disclaimer: I do keep several snakes in pairs, and some in groups. However I realize that things can go wrong, and I have to keep a close eye on those groups, to be sure they are not being adversely affected by these living conditions. Also if one happens to eat it's cagemate, it is 100% my fault, and I know the risks in advance!

What's wrong with using CAUTION?!?!?!
