Thanks for the replies, folks. Sorry if my original post was unclear. When I wrote that, we had fed him three times, resulting in two regurgitations.

One thing I forgot to point out about the third feeding was that I noticed that he took the pinkie in backward, feet first. I recall reading something that suggested that could also be a cause of regurgitation.

I also noticed that the live pinkies were pretty big for him. We picked up a frozen pinkie on Friday (before I saw any replies), and it seemed much smaller. He ate that, and so far, no regurgitation.

Hm, can't easily go back and look at the suggestions, but if we do get another regurgitation, we'll hold off on feeding him for a while, and possibly take him to a vet. I have the name of an exotic animal vet in the area.
