He only regurgitated if he even did because of being outside overnight in a 45-50 degree nighttime temp. And stress. I feed larger items less often and I have 15 years experience with constrictors. My feeding routine works and everyone is different and every snake is different. I will adjust his meals as we go along. If I feel they are too large I will reduce them. If I feel Im feeding too often and he refuses food or shows signs of a problem. I will fix that problem.

Thanks again guys. Hes doing ok. He wont eat but as I said he does seem like hes in very very early shed stage. He shed last about a month ago exactly so I would figure as s 200 gram baby he should be shedding any day now. So maybe hes refusing because hes starting shed and not because of regurgitation. He very well may have not regurgitated. In my opinion I think he did spit the mouse up though. He was in a stressful situation and temps dropped a lot. Most snakes would regurgitate, especially since they do this so they can move faster and get out of danger.
That would definitely cause a regurge, but unless you actually saw the regurge, it's hard to say. What leads you to believe he regurged?
