You can offer 2 pinkys. If he takes those with no problems I'd move him up to fuzzys soon.

Re: Food too much?

As EZ says, if it can take two pinks, you could move up to a fuzzy. There are those, however, that subscribe to the idea that multiple small feeders are better than the one large. I kind of straddle the fence, and depending on the snake, either give one large, or multiple smalls.

Re: Food too much?

I'd have that on fuzzies by now to be fair - pinks are not hugely nutritious. Nice little snake btw.

Re: Food too much?

That's just something that you'll have to get used to...waste products from your temperamental snakes!

The way to fix this is to get another snake and hope it's a garbage disposal like some of mine are!

Yeah I have a couple of waste disposal snakes. Very handy so you don't feel bad about binning perfectly good food
