    I provide my boa with enough room to stretch out fully, I dont worry about having a feeding box high cause she never tries to get out, shes too distracted with eating

    Replover,

    With all the snakes that we have, they all have different eating habits. We do not use tongs, just dangle the mouse/rat in front of the snake. Now the california king gets spooked and will not eat if the mouse accidently touches his face. The rat snake attacks that rat as fast as you put it in there and is always ready for a second. The balls sometimes will strike and eat, other times will just try to climb out of the feeding bin. When that happens, we will toss in the rat and cover the bin and most of the time they will eat, but then again sometimes they are not interested.
    So i guess it depends on the snake and the mood that its in. But dont you worry, when it's hungry it will eat. I do not see why you couldn't put two in there at once. If it wants it, it will eat!

    Steve

    Ok thanks. I just wasn't sure if snakes would eat two mice at once because of their unusual digestive and eating habits.

    After your balls eat, how long do they sort of hide away before becoming active again?

    2-3 days is the normal period, It also depends on how big the meal is too I guess

    Mine just slept for like 16 hours and then started climbing and running around again! Guess the mouse was too small! It wouldn't eat the bigger one though. I'm gonna try to feed it two small ones this next time.

    LOL! My pythons feed one evening and the next evening they are out cruising the tank again.
    And they are eating small RATS!
