    Just to mention , she hasn't popped since Saturday so her weight includes the 3 large mice currently being digested .

    700g she should take weaned-small rats. Go by 15% of her weight...

    You should be 10-15% of her body weight every 5-7 days. This would roughly translate to 73-109g if she were 730g empty.

    Also would say small rats. My juvenile BP currently takes 1 small rat per week.

    1.0 Normal Ball Python (Riddle)
    0.1 Normal BCI (Eve)
    0.1 Hypo BCI (Ember)

    Good luck! Let us know if you have any issues with the transition. There are lots of techniques, like scenting that usually do the trick.
