just got a new baby black blood python around 15 inches he will only eat rats that are a little to big for him he does eat any of the smaller ones i try how often should he eat since he is eating a larger than normal meal he eats it fine and dosnt regurgitate but dont wana make him get to over weight he will eat one eacj week if i let him but he seems to be getting very fat from this any info on bloods would help all my experince is with burms and carpets and green trees now i just got this baby blood and a baby retic so just wana make sure i keep these snakes as healthy as my others

I've never had blood pythons. But I'm pretty sure if the snake is eating by itself and your not force feeding it more then likely they are not too big for your snake... I'm shocked everytime I see my 200 gram bumble bee eat a weaned to small rat!

ok thanks yea when o got him i was told he was eating rat pups which makes since for his size i tryed that he would just look at it and not eat so i got a hopper rat and he did the same and then i tried small rat that seems way to big for him just cause i had some and feed them to some of my other snakes and he grabed it withn a few secs and ate it and the next week i tryed the smaller stuff again and he wouldnt eat so i threw a bigger rat n there and he grabed it and ate agian i was just worried cause the rats are alot bigger around than he is but now he is getting fat and about as big around as a rat lol

I honestly love the retic coloring and pattern, but they aren't for me. I had a jampea tiger and a normal jampea dwarf when I bought out a collection a while back and I almost didn't let them go, but luckily I knew what laid ahead. Maybe one day when the boy is big I will get another.
