    I have an 18 month old Coastal Carpet Python, Just shed a 80cm skin (shes 60cm or so long). What size should she(?) be at this age? How much should I be feeding her?. She has only been feeding 1,1,2,2,2 pinky rats with me, the first 4 weeks she did not want to eat with home change etc.

    Thanks

    She seems a fairly small 18 month old but their is nothing wrong with that if she is healthy. I usually recomend a food item about 20% of a carpet pythons weight but that is a rough percentage either side of it is fine. In my opinion pinky rats are way way to small.
