    Hi

    I'm going away for five days but unfortunately this is the day when i feed her

    Should I:
    Feed her and let her sit in her own poo until i get back
    Or
    Dont feed her and deal with her aggressiveness when I get back
    Thanks

    either will be fine, depending of course who "she" is. If she's a python i'd just leave her 5 days.
     
  3. She's not as dependent on food as you think she is. If you miss a week or a month it won't make any difference to the snake's health. Leave it until you get back - you don't need to be regular to the day with snakes - sometimes I feed mine weekly but it's not unusual if I'm away or busy for me to leave it a month or more. Probably gives their metabolism a rest actually, because their metabolism slows right down in the absence of food, as it's meant to.
