What a meal-size should be.....

I have never been one to agree with the people who fret and fret and fret over power-feeding. I think 99% of the keepers out there don't feed their snakes enough. They feed them tiny items that don't even put a noticable bulge and they "feed" far too infrequently. Snakes are built to eat largish items (especially Boids) and they are built to thermoregulate and then eat again.

Here's a small Jungle Carpet Python (2 months old) with a typical food item inside. Not a large food item at all. Believe me, I've fed larger.
