    Hey guys,
    My bredli was only fed about 3 times up until I got her a month ago. She was feeling on pinky mice so was giving her a pinky mice every 5 days from the advice of a pet shop. Now I’ve moved her onto pinky rat but have been told to give her something with fur and I believe the fuzzie rats would be way to big for her at the moment.

    Any tips on what to feed her and how often? She has no problem eating and I swear she would eat every day if she had the chance

    Thanks guys!

    Hi James.

    You'd be surprised what they are capable of eating. I put these pics up a couple of years back to give people an idea of just how big of a food item small carpets can take. These little guys are only a couple of months old and they both have full grown mice in their bellies. Both were wild snakes that raided my outdoor mouse breeding cages. They had the choice of mice from pinkies through to adults and they chose the adults. So yours shouldn't have any difficulty knocking down a fuzzie mouse.

    Cheers,

    George.

    This is a good idea of the size they can take
