My corn Snake looks still hungry after a meal.
I have a 170 grams , 80 cm long 1 year old Corn snake, he eats 2 small mice every week around 9-10 grams each he still looks for more food , what shall I do ? feed him 3 mice ? or as much he wants every week. Thanks for your help
It is normal for your snake to still be in "feed mode" directly after eating. Just make sure that the prey item only leaves a small bulge when swallowed, if it's too big they could regurgitate, and if there is no bulge, even after two mice, you may want to up the size of the mice; he may still be hungry. I find hook training to work well when getting one of my snakes out of fee mode, just a small tap to the nose with my snake hook to let them know that I'm not prey and I'm going to be picking them up, so don't bite.
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.
