To anyone - When have you found that they can be moved up in feeder size? Moving up to fuzzies. I hear a lot of people talk about feeding pinkies to their boas that look like they could take fuzzies or bigger. I have heard they prefer nesting prey, is that why people stick with smaller prey items?
My experience with my first sand boa he/she was a good size and easily took hoppers. My new guy is 4 months old and still small enough to take pinkies and gets them once a week (minus shedding). He has a good growth rate so far.
I have usually moved mine up to the next feeder size when they can take 2 of one particular prey item without leaving a noticeable lump....I actually have two 4 month olds that will take small hoppers with no issues whatsoever, a male albino and a female stripe dh snow....
