Thanks for your info and help , may l ask you this, l had been told to feed every 10 days and now is less active and is not shedding as he / she was every 1 to 1 1/2 month is that normal ? Thanks again and best regards.
It all depends on the size of the food. I tend to seed smaller prey items, so I feed every 7-10 days. I make sure the food leaves only a slight lump. When feeding my larger snakes that get larger food, I wait 3-4 weeks.
