Best mouse size?

So I know I've asked this multiple times and I apologize in advance but I'm only asking again because I actually got to see Sapphire eat this time, and seen how big of a bulge was created with a small fuzzy. You almost couldn't even tell that she had eaten the bump in her was so small. So I was wondering should I step up to a large fuzzy or should I go one further and step up to...I think a hopper would be the next step up from there. I'm just not sure which I should do for the next feeding. I'm sorry I've been so redundant and keep asking the same question I just want to be sure I'm feeding her what she needs. Thank you for your patience.
1) 1 Brazilian Rainbow Boa (Sapphire), 2) 2 Dogs, 1 Rotterman (Chewbacca) 1 Dachshund (Cricket) 3) 2 Horses, 1 Arabian/Paint (Sierra) 1 Tennessee Walker/Paint (Oakley)

Re: Best mouse size?

You donít have to be that worried about increasing the meal size. I donít know what type of snake you are talking about and how old. But I will give you an example out of my own experience. I got my male amazon tree Boa when he was 8 months old and he was being fed baby mice. I immediately upgraded his meal size from baby mice to adult mice. Now he is 15 months old healthy and flourishing and still eating adult mice. Iím not advising to do the same, Iím saying that upgrading the food size should not be a problem.

Yes you can increase the size. Just make sure whatever size prey you get doesn't leave to big of a bulge on her.
I am no expert. Iím just knowledgeable in reptiles, Iíll do my best to help you.
