Re: How often to feed a Kenyan Sand Boa?

I’d say 7 days is a good start. I’m not an expert on the species, but it takes snakes a minimum of 7-18 days to digest a meal. I personally don’t feed any snake eating mammals more often than 7 days. I normally feed baby boas every 7-14 days, but where I fall on the spectrum depends on the species’ metabolic/growth rate.

Average feeding for adult boids is every 2-3 weeks, so I’d assume that’s the same with KSBs. I might feed closer to 2 weeks since they’re small, but they’re also heavy bodied so 3 weeks may also work. Hopefully more experienced keepers will chime in if that seems agreeable. I’m a more conservative feeder than most.
