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

Re: BRB size?

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

Re: BRB size?

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.

Re: BRB size?

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.

Re: BRB size?

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.
