I feed my 3ft BP large rats every 10-12 days. It depends on the snake, really. I don't agree with feeding a snake a certain size to prevent them from growing, though. Definately not. But, not all snakes are the same..even in the same species. If he is feeding his snake one small/MEDIUM rat once a month and he is not thin, then what's the problem? People tend to seriously over feed their animals sometimes.
edit: You link to care sheets, but what do care sheets tell you? Nothing, really. You have to figure stuff out for YOUR snake. Like I said, every snake is different. You can't base your feeding schedule soley on care sheets.
