BRB size?
 
So Sapphire is going to be 5 months old on Monday the 29th and she is only 1' 7" long and 31g she has grown a lot since she came to me and I don't always feed her every week but...is this too small and is it bad if I feed her every two weeks? She is eating hoppers now for every feeding but only for the last 3 feeds. I think I am going to go back to feeding once a week I just feel like she is growing way too slow. Any feedback would be great. Thank you

I feed all my growing young snakes weekly, adults less often.

It worked Yay! I'm so glad cuz I've been trying to figure out how to post pictures. My phone won't resize them and my computer is on the fritz. So at least I have a way to show off my baby now lol

remove the spaces between the url and the "img" tags and the photo will post...the spaces make the system think it's just a sentence.

I just checked my records on my last BRB when I purchased it at 6 months old, it was 38 grams, so I would guess that you snake is just about the right size for that age. I don't measure the length of the snakes since I can't do anything about that. I track the weight so I can make sure that I am not over or under feeding my snakes.

You have one tiny baby! Sanji was about ~65-70 grams at 6 months old, he was 40 grams when I got him at 2 months old.

He was eating mouse fuzzies every 10 days up until he was 6 months old, then I moved him to hopper mice every 10 days at 65-70 grams.

Baby BRBs have a bit of a higher metabolism, I generally feed 7-10 days until about 2 years old. At 2, I space them out to 2 weeks, and adults I plan on feeding every 3-4 weeks.
