Re: multiple prey too stressful?

I agree with El Ziggy in his assessment of switching your BP to one small or medium sized rat. You will find that she will probably grow fast with that feeding program as well. From what it sounds like, you're feeding your snake live prey items. If that is true, you will find that there is a HUGE difference in the defence mechanisms of rats as compared to mice. One caution... where your BP can easily over power a mouse, if she grabs a rat wrong or doesn't constrict it correctly, rats can and will do serious damage to your snake. I would STRONGLY recommend that you try to switch your snake over to taking FT mice or rats instead of live feedings. Your snake, your call, but just think how you will feel if/when your snake gets injured, possibly fatally or blinded in an eye, etc. Just something to think about...
