>>Recently, I acquired a juvenile Woma python ( few months old). My first feeding for her was today, in which she took the rat pup readily... Then proceeded to bite herself and a piece of driftwood in her enclosure. What a feeding response! My problem is that upon having her strike the thawed rat pup, I realized I never measured its external temp ( it was under the heat lamp). It measured 115 on the temp gun after she struck at it, and then 105 as she began devouring it. Was that too got? I'm afraid to burn her or cause internal damage. Normally my f/ t prey measure around 85 - 95.

I warm my prey to 102 degrees at feed. That i believe is at the high end of the natural range of the live body temp.
