Corns have alway been big eaters for me, I would do 2 times a week, if he'll do 2 pinks give it to him. Most people under estimate what there snake can eat.

we had that issue with thinking one was enough for some of ours but when we gave them 2, they started to put weight on... and now all of ours are at decent sizes for their ages

yes i just got another corn same age as him that was over twice his size a few days ago. she stayed up in the tree almost entire time. but i threw out all bedding and the tree branch and washed everthing else with bleech and dish soap and i also gave her a bath i did the same with my ball since i couldnt remember if i handled her directly after him or vise versa. just in case you know.

i think it was a birth defect. only because he was a great eater, he just never grew. in the 3 months i had him he shed only once. and when i saw the others that were same age as him they were all well over twice his size.
