Hi everyone,
This is anakin my Darwin he is currently on small rats and is just over a year old he’s head was quite small when I first got him as the previous owner only had him on small mice so I started the process of stretching out his head so he can take bigger pray to his body ratio(and yes I’m aware they can take down pray 3x bigger then their head but he’s head was really small compared to his body) he has come so far I was just wanting some advice is feeding him 2 small rats every week too much or not enough I have a feeling it might be too much but he seems to be really content with 2 rats ? These photos are just after a feed so he looks abit chonky in them otherwise his body condition in my opinion is quite good I will also mention he does love his food and has never rejected a meal and in theory if I offered him 5 rats I don’t think he would refuse lol he is a greedy guts. Photos attached

He looks very well fed to me 😊 ! I would suggest once a week is to much, you could try 1 larger rat every 3 or 4 weeks for example. Let him tell you when he's hungry through body language. My bredli would probably eat till he went "POP" if i let him, but it's not good for them. Good luck.
