How often should your 1 1/2 year old ball python be fed?

I was told my python should eat once a week. And she does. I feed her a mouse very week and she eats it's no problem. But then I was told that she shouldn't be eating that much and that she is big for er age. so I should cut back to a mouse every 2 to 3 weeks.

I think it should be fed appropriately-sized mice and rats at the rate of 1 every week. Ball pythons raised on rats tend to grow faster than those that are raised on mice. Visit a vet for more clarification. Visit http://royalconstrictordesigns.com/index.php?page=ball-python-care-sheet for more on feeding.

You need to call the Vet. It can very on the size of your snake & what you feed it. If your feeding it mice you have to feed it more than if you were feeding it rabbits, so it's a good idea to talk to a Vet.

About once every week. It takes snakes a long time to digest there food!
