Decent read

A lot of problem feeders are easily solved by proper keeping (enclosure, husbandry).  But there are always the oddballs that will leave you scratching your head no matter what.  One of the biggest things I've had issues with was enclosure/tub size.  They can be quite pesky to move up tub sizes I had a girl sitting at 500 grams 6 months ago was non stop eater moved her up to a 28qt and she would not eat, moved her back in a 12 qt and shes been eating every other week now and refuses to move up a prey size.  Shes currently 550 grams empty.

Other snakes have issues with this too often, Retics and Burms (mainly retics) if the enclosure is to big will push and rub their head/face raw.  They typically still eat but looks like someone took a grinder to their face.
