    Got a stimson is about 10-11 months old now, had it for about 4 weeks. Has been eating every friday, Found out couple of weeks ago it shed. But was still eating every Friday. Didnt notice it was Coming. After the shed I offered it 1 Fuzzie Mice and once it finished offered a second one, did this last week and today and took both of them.
    Currently its 49Grams and hard to length but around 50-55cm.

    Question is Should I go to rats or a larger mice? What would everyone recommend.

    I only take mine outside for 10 mins here and there whenever I notice it active when I'm getting my turtles out into the sun.
