  1. Hi there, I own a Sumatran Blood and I was wondering if it was ok to feed the snake during shed. I haven't fed him in a while and I want to feed him so he's a little happier. If so, can I feed him something big? Thanx

    My corn will eat during her shed but I give her smaller prey items so she doesn't regurgitate it because of the stress of shedding, I don't know about pythons though.

    I've heard that feeding during shedding can help the shed along. I don't think it holds any ground. I've had no problems feeding normal sized pray to any of my snakes during their shed cycle. If the'll eat during their shed they get fed as normal. I've done this with my Balls, Corns, Carpets, and Boas. Without problems at all.

    They don't have to eat before they go into shed. Sometimes my snakes will eat before a shed or while in shed and sometimes they don't. Usually if they don't eat before or during a shed, they will eat afterwards. Most times though they don't bother with wanting to eat during shed. They used to eat all the time during shed when they were younger but now that they're older they usually don't eat until after.
