Whats important is conditions, temps, security, etc. Type of cage. Also How you feed it.

If the above is normal, then I have to wonder how often you fed your snake, I think you said 60 pinks in two years.

That comes out to one every two weeks. I am not sure why. But I feed my neonates every other day and they grow like weeds, strong and healthy. also you said, xsp. Is that extra small pinkies. Hogs have thick bodies and big giant mouths. Which means they are built to eat large items.

I work with hogs in the field and new hatchlings. Consume adult green toads/spadefoot toads, and they are many times larger then a pinky. They also consume lizards that are three or four times larger then pinks.

Again, the above is assuming your vet was correct and there is nothing physically wrong with your snake.

From my limited experience, we have had females grow from hatchling weight(5 -8 grams) to almost two hundred grams in one year. And I am still learning about these goofy creatures. best wishes
