    From what I understand, the more you feed them, the faster they grow. We feed our juvenile corn about once a week or 1 1/2 weeks (depending on when he sheds). He's been shedding every 6 weeks or so.

    Also, I've been advised (on this web site!) to feed the snake only 1 food item at a time. He's up to 1 adult mouse now. When I fed him 2 small mice-he ended up regurgitating-quite a concern!

    I wonder if ANY animal would turn down food until he/she had gorged?

    Wow, I guess I have the odd ones, then. All of mine get 2 mice a week. Once, the largest got her 2 fuzzies, plus the 2 pinkies that were for the 2 babies cause I dinna realize they were shedding, so 4 mice in 1 day, and no regurg! After reading this I feel kinda lucky, but she's a pig, even eats when she's cloudy.
