Re: prey size and weight

I don't feel like feeding by weight is a realistic way to feed our snakes.
it depend on snake. Carpets can eat food up to 5 times bigger their heads. But if it's a corn he couldn't. I thought all pythons can manage much bigger prey.

It's very interesting how weight of prey affect to growing of snake.
that is very interesting experiment to have two carpets and giving one snake 10% prey and 30% to others.

For example all ppl say don't feed carpets fish. But when I was feed my carpet fish she was shedding every 2-3 weeks. And it's much faster than on mice. It means fast growing. Too bad I couldn't feed other carpet 30% mice and compare. I don't call anyone feed snakes fish.
Sorry my English Feel free to correct my mistakes.
