Re: Power feeding

That might be somewhat species dependent since they don't all respond to excess food the same. Some get fat easy and some just put it all into growth. Pits like my bull will just grow and posts on the subject to the fb group seem to say the end result of heavy feeding when doing the most growing is a larger snake in the end. Versus the blood python species being known to just get fatter easier. It does seem you can stunt some snakes too. My 3year old rosy was kept cold and barely fed until I got her last summer and while she shot up in size an amazing amount she's mostly leveled out below average. She's been turning down food a lot even with the US native species saying it's time to wake up and start packing on the food for breeding and growing in the warm season.
