    Hi, just wondering how often I should clean out my snakes poo as I have a baby BHP who is eating and pooing a lot. Are there any risks in leaving snake poo for to long? Or can I possibly have a certain day of the week to clean it all out? Any advice will be greatly appreciated :D

    best to clean it as soon as u see it, otherwise it will become a habit to not clean it...

    + it looks bad if someone *were* to come by and see poopoo in ur snake enclosure just sitting there all crusty and dry

    Yep, I feel it is definitely best practice to remove excrement as soon as reasonably possible in order to maintain basic hygiene. It's not like you have to do it everyday anyway.

    How often are you feeding the snake & how often is it defecating?

    He's eating 2 quail at a time every 5 days and pooping a day or two later

    Try feeding only after he poops

    And try giving him one big feed instead of 2 smaller feeds

    Depends on ur own cleanliness, if you like hanging out with ur ****s , clean 1x a week if you don’t clean regular.
