I used to feed our adults rodents twice a week until they slowed down (partial hibernation), now it's only once per week. They get fruits and veggies every other day with tilapia & possibly another protein spread out during the week. They don't always get up to eat.
I managed to over feed our new male Blue (3 years old, about 36"), feeding him 2 adult mice every other day and all the fruits & veggies he could stuff into himself every day. He cleaned to bowl every time and after 7 days started throwing up. I knew I over fed him and he was impacted. A one hour each way to the herp vet and alot of money later we got him cleared.
I'm not saying you're over feeding him, he'll tell you that. I assume he's getting more than rodents and he can't possibly be starting to hibernate if he's eating that much. I wonder how he can be handling all that fur every day. He must be one regular little guy!!
YES!! Some body pics would be nice!
What size tank/enclosure is he in? Maybe he needs more room.hoosier said:i know what you mean. hes 39''. i am cutting back on radents. but for somereason hes starting to attack his glass when i walk in because he wants food. when i feed him, he dosnt do that. yes he gets a variety of fruits and loves ground turkey. hes not hibernating though. hes wide awake and lets me know it when hes hungry. lol
