    Can I feed twice in 5 days?

    Okay, I've had my ball python, Melvin, for almost 3 years now. He's almost four, since when I got him he was one. Anyways, he's currently eaten small rats, once a week. This past week, a lot had happened and I missed the date that I normally feed him, Friday. I'm going to feed him tomorrow night, Sunday night. However, I have to leave for a few days, of course being on Friday, so I'd have to feed him again on Thursday. Would that be okay, or should I wait a week?

    So feed him Sunday night, the 9th, then again on Thursday night, the 13.

    Better to wait until the week after. It won't hurt him to wait that long.

    Given that hes an adult probably not, skipping a feeding wont hurt him

    I liked it too, thanks- but it's not one of mine.
