    That mouse looks a little too big for the snake to eat. Remember the mouse should be as wide as the widest part of the snake (midsection).

    It can be wider, like 1.5 times. As long as the snake can swallow and digest fine, it's o.k in my eyes.

    Okay, when I was researching about Red-Tailed Boas I read that you shouldn't have the mouse any wider than the widest part, but I vaguely remember it saying 1.5 times wider is O.K. but not the safest. So I just go the width of the snake just to be safe..

    We might have different sources then.... Everything i've read says 1.5 times is ideal, so i might have just read different stuff than you. Anyways, i know with my snakes, i feed 1.5 times meals, and have had no issues so far, so i've never really thought twice about it.

    Either way, a meal smaller than a pinkie mouse is pretty much impossible, so until the snake is larger it's pretty much a moot point.

    Okay. I think I will try out a size up from adult mice when I get a chance to order some rats.

    Neonate corns do 1.5 times the size of their head. My pythons are no larger then their girth. I started the corn out by feeding him a pinkie head. Hes moved up to full pinks.

    Yea, my breeder is real proud of the patterns he has been able to put out. Very cool and different. Like you said- no finicky eaters here. He has never turned down a meal. Not like the pythons.......

    If a corn can take the head, it can take the entire pinkie.

    Yep my new hatchlings(july 2012) had no problem with full newborn pinks as their first meal :)

    That bull is really cute, how's the temper on her/him?

    Excellent. He rarely hisses. I've handled him regularly since I've gotten him. He has on occasion bluffed at my dog when she has gotten too close.
    Overall all he is outgoing and very curious.
