    My recent aquired bp's... questions.

    I have just received 2 new bp's from a online source and I'm concerned about one.. its spine is showing more that I have seen before.. I've herd that its just to being underweight and not eating, but I was told they have been on weekly feedings and was just fed on Saturday.. need some help.. not sure how to add photos on here yet

    Some breeders only maintenance feed so the baby may certainly be eating, but it was only getting a mouse fuzzy every 7-10 days instead of a mouse hopper or rat pup every 5-7 days.

    What does it look like when not balled up?
    See nothing of concern in those photos because when they ball it causes the spine to be more prominent.

    Little on the thin side but most of us keep fat snakes so not much to worry about.
