    Two of them were about 100g, so I think I'm underfeeding a bit. And I have large ones coming that are supposedly 100-150g. I haven't bothered to try a rat again, but I think it's worth a shot.

    That reminds me of my loving, Wallace the retic in a smaller package.

    I've never weighed him, and have never been able to measure him.

    Nice looking bite there!

    Yea, not really making a habit out of it, but I had to clean her enclosure anyway, so I didn't really need to do anything special to weigh her. I've tried this http://serpwidgets.com/main/measure a couple times and I get anywhere in the 7' range. I think that's accurate because her skin is 9'.

    I have a measure app on my phone, but by the time I get it all set, he's on the move.

    I'm guessing he's anywhere between 8 and 10 feet.

    I'd say you are probably in the ballpark with your guess.

    If she's 1040g then 100g of food is a decent meal for her but I would occasionally give her larger meals. I definitely think it's worth trying to get her on rats. It'll make things a lot easier as she grows. I'd try scenting and chain feeding for the next 2-3 offerings and then shut off the quail entirely. That should familiarize her with the new food source. Once she's eating rats consistently I'd start offering a diverse diet.

    Chain feeding a small quail and medium rat worked perfectly. Seems like she took longer to find the food, not sure if coincidence or not, but it still worked.
