morelia spilota isn't a subspecies. It's all good and well to deal with species and localities, but unfortunately we currently have subspecies (cheynei for jungles, mcdowelli for coastals, etc). Mareeba is is up near Cairns, so I'm guessing it's a jungle (cheynei).

My Jungle at 15mo was getting 2 hopper rats a fortnight, moved her up to weiners when she turned 18mo.I'm after carpet pythons; would prefer stripes, females, pure or crosses, have 39 so far and more on their way. Not a tyrekicker, I just ask many questions and Im over friendly & talkative too.
The reason we said it's still hungry is a defensive strike will 'usually' be a hit and let go, where as if they start to hang on and wrap around like they do with food it suggests it's a hunger hit. You may not need to go to 'adult' mice but certainly he is past the need for weeners by the sound of it. I fed my Mac on Sub-adults so ones that were half grown but bigger than the weeners. The other option is next regular feed offer him 2 weeners. Like one of the others said... are the weeners creating a noticable bump in his belly?
The best way to get the snake to release you is to use a tiny bit of mouthwash on its nose. Snakebytes tested out heaps of different methods and this one worked straight away and doesn't harm the snake. Water doesn't work.
