Phyllis is about the same size and a colossal rat from big cheese doesn’t even leave a lump anymore

    Ohhhh if she is as big around as a softball, a large rat is a tic tac lol. Caesar is as thick as a coke can and he easily eats 2XL guinea pigs and even those leave a noticeable lump but nothing him or i see as big as he still cruises around after eating one. You want to feed it something at least as thick as itself or up to 1.5 times as thick. I mean you can go bigger. I had fed Caesar stuff that made him look like he ate a football. Those were the only times when you could clearly see he was full and he waddled off behind a hide lol.

    I laid a coke can beside her this morning. Her head is as big as the can and her body is larger. I think you are right about going up in size. I fed her yesterday and can not see the lump. Keep in mind that she eat 2 mediums because the large and xl large were out at the store. They have my weekly list of feeding needs so they try to keep it in stock for me.

    She was sleeping out in the open this morning. She pushed her hide aside. I guess she didn't want to hide.

    Re: Rainbow is my new SunTiger female reticulated python progression.

    I think you’re going to be surprised how small xsmall rabbits and xl guinea pigs are. Phyllis eats xxxxl guinea pigs like it’s nothing and she’s the same size as rainbow. Let us know what you think of rodent pro rabbits though. Kinda spendy but I might try em out if the look ok. I’m just not a huge fan of their packaging and some of the feeders were kinda stinky and look like they were covered in piss last order I got

    She's a beautiful critter sky! I think the Tiger retics are my favorite too. Besides those gnarly teeth and pictures of bites from those gnarly teeth, the things that concern me most about getting a retic are the pushing, the pee/poop tsunamis, and the vast amounts of food they consume. All of the snakes I have eat every 10-14 days sometimes longer. You retic keepers seem to have to feed large meals every 5-10 days even for adults.
