    She sounds like shes still in hunt mode cause shes hungry. Try the next size up

    So does that mean I should feed her 2 on Monday because the pet shop I got mine from said she was feeding on fuzzys

    Or or should I feed her another one today

    Well.... if shes still hungry. Feed her one today then wait a day or 2 and feed her the next one. When you run out of fuzzies, go get some weanling rats and give her one of those every 4 - 5 days

    A full content snake is alot less likely to be snappy because it basically cbf becuse its got a full tummy. So feeding her weanlings will not only giver better nutrition but it will hopefully make her less snappy.

    Also, alot of pet shops are known for giving wrong information or are just product pushers. They also feed them smaller food items to keep the animal smaller while trying to sell. Not all places are like that but quite a few are. She definitely needs to be on weanlings. She will be much happier for it :3

    Not necessarily hungry. May just be stressed from the move. Leave her alone for a few weeks to settle in. Once she's fed four or five times without any issues you can start handling.
