Hi all,
I have a 7 month old female albino bull snake that I've had since January. She's the first pit I've kept. I was wondering how much they typically weigh at this stage. She weighs 270g as of yesterday which is almost as large as both my yearling king snakes (294g and 280g). She doesn't look overweight at all and is fed 2-3 small/medium mice or rat fuzzys every 6-7 days(approximately 15% of her body weight). Is this a good feeding regiment? Also, are two small meals every 4-5 days the same as one large meal every 7-10 days? Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions.
