    I weigh all of mine before everyfeed.
    I pop them in a bag or pillow case and then into a tub on the scale.

    Ether, it can be a good idea if you want to monitor your snakes growth, however if it is feeding regularly then it is not necessary. Up to you really. When you take your snake in to the vet they should weigh it for you. They can tell you if it is over or underweight. IMO.

    I must admit I am remiss in this area, stopped weighing them about a year ago but keep telling myself I must start weighing them again. Problem is I hate taking orders so I don't listen to myself!!
    Must start doing it again though :)
