Young hognose lost weight


Pretty new hognose owner here. Iíve had him exactly a month (heís just over 2 months old) and weigh him every 2 weeks. 2 weeks ago he was 17g, and now heís only 15g. Is that an issue?

Slightly concerned I should be feeding him more? I currently give him 1 pinkie every 5 days but I donít know if losing weight means so should give him more?

Any advice greatly appreciated

I might be concerned if the snake continues to lose weight but your snake's weight is going to fluctuate a little. The pink mouse should weigh around 1.5 grams, so having the weight change by around that amount is not extreme.
