I'm well aware of what they're capable of swallowing, and I realize it won't harm them. My argument is with the caloric load associated with feeding meals of that size on a regular basis. They don't need that much food.

I think the boiled eggs with monitors is more a matter of lowering the amount of mess that would come from raw eggs than anything.

Re: prey size and weight

Not many snakes would eat eggs and those who do can actually determine whether the egg is fresh, or there's a big chick inside, by their smell.

You feed your snakes what they need to be fed on. Not doing so only leads to complications.
