Love it! Not everyone should power feed their snakes. I occasionally turn the temp of my racks to room temp and let the animals go off feed for near a month, while carefully monitoring their weight. This also helps keep the snakes from being lethargic when food is introduced. Not to mention brumating snake for three months at 48-55 degrees with no food (after all previous meals have been excreted). If you felt your snake was being under fed, it wouldn't hurt to give him an extra mouse or rat if they'll take it. I have personally accidentally over fed a ratsnake (to death, some snakes don't know when to stop) some time ago.
