Another Feeding Question

    Hey everyone,

    It's time to increase the size of my ball python's meals. He is currently eating 1 adult mouse every week. My problem is that he is already eating the largest mouse I can find and is too small for the smallest rats I can find. Should I bump him up to 2 adult mice? Feed every five days rather than seven? Feed an adult mouse and a fuzzy? What do you all think?

    Thanks in advance

    hennisntacanibal- I wish. There are not breeders in my area and I am not in a situation where I can start my own colony.

    If there is a reptile expo by you, that is an excellent place to get feeders. A lot of people will order from places like rodetpro online as well.

    My bp went straight from the large mice to the small rats they offered at Petco without too much trouble.
