Re: Male size to age??

That explains the fast growth! Most males never need anything more than a small rat every 7 days. And once they hit a certain size a small rat every 10-14 days is often enough.

There are 2 basic rules of thumb for feeding juvenile BPs
1) the prey item should be about the same width around as the snake at its largest point
2 ) the prey item should weigh between 10-15% of the snakes weight.
