    Heís gone from 400g to 620g in the past two months. Still gentle and sweet, once I tone down his feeding response with the hook!

    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    Leviathan Progress Thread

    Here he is now, right around 7 feet long. Iíve been feeding him once a week consistently. Heís just gone to large rats now, should I space out his feedings?

    Iím thawing my other animalsí food now and he is fired up!

    Personally I see no advantage in having a hungry growing baby retic. I feed my 2 year old weekly still and she just moved to jumbo rats, or 2 lb rabbits. Granted mine are female and they grow so fast at this age. I don't power feed but I also don't let them go hungry. My 3 year old eats when she asks and she is not greedy eating every 2 to 3 weeks a grown chicken. At over 14 feet and over 57lbs that is not bad. She is still growing quickly. Your guy is a male. He should not grow as fast or large as my to females. I also give mine large spaces to live and move around in so they do some exploration and I also play with them both a few times a week. The younger one Aurora is always in food mode till I put her hook in. Then she calms down. She attacked her water bowl once and constricted it. Was an interesting event. She flew about 4 feet out of her hide and that is about half of her body length. Feeding day was the next day. I took that as a clear sign she was ready for larger prey. Some say feed them minimum to keep them small. If you want small get a ball. These guys need to grow and explore and interact because they are intelligent animals. All this is my opinion and should be taken as such.
