    Question Feeding inside of there tub

    Does it matter if I feed her in side her tub? or is this a bad habit for?

    Moving to feed can cause unnecessary stress. Always feed in the enclosure and if you are feeding live, supervise the whole time until you know 100% the mouse/rat is dead and won’t harm your snake.

    Feeding a snake in its enclosure does not cause tank aggression; that myth was debunked years ago. You are more likely to get bit while moving a snake for feeding than not.


    Keepers with small snakes or very few snakes feed in a separate enclosure because they heard or read from someone with no clue that feeding the snake in its enclosure makes it think your hand is food.


    Keepers with many snakes feed in the enclosure for convenience.


    Keepers with giant constrictor snakes feed in the enclosure so they don't end up in the emergency room.


    Keepers with venomous snakes feed in the enclosure so they don't end up in the morgue.

    Good, cause i feed her, in her tub, where she sleeps, and just want to keep it that way, im not worried about getting bit, i got her at 91grams so she has no choice but to get use to my hands. plus i love holding her every day.. is this recommended 48hr not to handle, after feeding even into there adult hood? or is this just for babys / juvies?
    And at what months after birth, are they considered Juveniles? then Adults?

    I feed all my snakes inside their enclosures and I don’t handle them for 48 hours after they’ve eaten. I consider them juveniles at 18 months and adults at 3 or 4.

    so You are saying they are juvies till about 18 months?
    Then adults 3 to 4? 3 to 4 years down the line? I don't understand your answer's you gave me, for my question...

    91g is a "hatchling", not really a "juvenile". There isn't really a hard rule, but I would consider BPs "hatchling" until ~250g, 250-500 "juvenile", 500-1000 "sub-adult", 1000+ "adult" even though for females that's still well below full grown. Everyone is going to have different answers for that.

    Doesn't matter how old they are, I wouldn't handle them till 48 after eating.
