Two of my carpets weigh about 3kg each. They eat anything from a medium to a jumbo rat every 2-3 weeks. The mediums rats are 100-150g, the large rats are 200-250g, and the jumbos are 300g+.
3kg/0.3kg=10%

So I confused. 100% or 10% ?
By the way that scientific article says boas and python when adult eat up to 1/5 weight prey.
