Today is his 4th feeding since the regurge, and so far so good!
Thank you everyone for the advice, I really appreciate it.
He's such a great snake, very tolerant of being handled, very alert and curious. And his appetite is improving, normally he would see the food, tongue flick it, push it with his nose, then go poke around doing other things and come back later to eat it.
Today, he started eating before I even got him into the feeding tub. He ate while I was holding him.
I know that's not a big deal for most snakes as I've had that happen quite a bit, but its the first time for him so I'm excited.
Note: I don't try to feed them while I'm holding them, it's just that when they start while I'm holding them, I hold them and I stay as motionless as possible until they crawl off of my hands.
If they climb off right away, I let them, if they wait, I let them wait, figured it would be less stressful while they eating than sliding them off my hands if they don't want to be slid, if that makes any sense.
