2y old Burmese Python feeding schedule

I got my Burmese python at about a year old, around 7 months ago. He was already about a year old, around 3ft long. I've had him for 7 months and he's grown to around 4.5 feet. He was eating large mice, 1 every two weeks. I've been feeding him now small rats. 1 every two weeks. I was under the impression this was sufficient, but after reading around and seeing other people's feeding schedules, it made me think maybe this isn't enough? The rats are fairly big, but perfect in size for the girth of the snake. I saw other people saying that their two year old python is like 7 foot though. Are they just more like power-feeding? Am I underfeeding? Please let me know what you think. Thank you.

Re: 2y old Burmese Python feeding schedule

Your snake is being underfed. A burmese python should reach over 5 feet in the first year.

If you're feeding appropriately sized rats then I would change it to weekly feedings instead of bi-weekly. If you want to feed larger rats, like a medium rat then I would goto 10 days between feeding.
