    Thumbs up UPDATE: Ate rat tonight.

    Update: gave her a rat tonight. One of the new ones that I picked up Thursday night. She struck it right away, and ate it. I really think the issue must have been with the rat I tried to give her. Thank goodness she was smart enough to leave it. So tonight is the 3rd rat she's taken from me, since May 2018. Gonna be a good year! I was so worried that I would have to give her back. I am so happy the "switch" to take f/t has turned on for her.

    What's her weight? What size rat in grams?
    She weighs 1106 grams. The rat I gave her tonight weighed just under 75g.

    Now wait another seven days before you offer food again

    Got it.
    My male weighs about the same and he eats a 90g rat every 3-4 weeks. If I offer weekly, that's 2-3 rats that go straight to the garbage can. Your snake will let you know how much she wants to eat, but you need to keep a feeding record. That's how I knew he was refusing 2 rats and eating the 3rd rat (so he eats every 3 weeks, sometimes once a month.)
