Smile I love my reptiles!

As of right now, the only two reptiles I have are a 3-year old gray-banded kingsnake and a 6-year old leopard gecko. They are both non-breeding males.
I think I'll show everyone some pictures.

This is my snake, Lincoln.

Because of his thickness, he eats one thawed pink mouse every Wednesday and Saturday. I would show you a photo of him eating one, but I don't think
anyone would appreciate that.

And this is Ninety-Nine (named after J. J. Watt).

Actually, Ninety-Nine is his middle name; his first name is Steve because he
was named that before I adopted him. See, his original owner kept forgetting to put his worms back in the fridge after feeding time! Isn't
that peculiar??
Anyway, Ninety-Nine eats around seven worms every other day.

Well... it was one when I first got him, but he's growing, so yes, he gets two per week.
I understand that it sounds crazy, but it's true.

Very nice critters. Your king needs more food though.

Re: I love my reptiles!

Love the coloration of your king. How long is he?

Am not telling you what or how much to feed, but I am quite surprised by the amount you're feeding your snake & the schedule. Two pinkies a week is what my king was eating when I got him at 6 mos. He quickly moved up to two fuzzies per week. He's 2 yo now and gets a small adult mouse per week. Have been wondering if it may be almost time to increase his prey size.

My King is an adult, about 52" and almost 800 grams. He eats an adult mouse every 7-10 days and is still growing slowly.

He still eats pinkies. I don't know how much he weighs just yet, though I think I should increase the number of mice per week so he ADVANCES TO THE NEXT SIZE AT ALL.

Lincoln measures nearly two feet long.

You can definitely up his prey size. Pinkies are primarily just water, so he's almost living on water. Pinkies haven't developed bones or fat or anything else of any nutritional value yet.
