    Question Ball Python - Is this normal/healthy? (Shedding & Weight)

    Hi everyone, wondering if this is normal. I know every snake is a little different but just want to make sure.

    I got my ball python in August at 69g and he seemed underweight. He now weighs 210g, he has shed 3x with 7-8 weeks inbetween each shed. I started him on mice hoppers and quickly switched to fuzzy rats feeding once every 7 days, and upgraded again to rat pups almost 2 months ago after his last shed feeding every 10-14 days now.

    Is this healthy weight gain? Is it normal for him to shed that seldom? I read that when they are younger they should shed about every 4-6 weeks? All sheds have been nice full sheds with no problems.

    His body shape looks alot healthier now as well.

    Thanks for any feedback!
