Re: I fed my boa too big of a rat

I don't keep boas so I'm not sure my opinion counts in this case but I've fed kings meals that were 25% of their body weight. I've fed 120g carpet pythons 40g jumbo mice. That's 1/3 of the snake's body weight. I was leery about feeding such a large meal to my snake but the breeder assured me that it was perfectly fine. Carpets are known for taking down large prey. I'm not sure if the same applies to boas.
