Hi we new to python we have a Stimson python we think he is about a year old. When we purchased him about 6 months ago we were told to feed him very tiny mice once a fortnight we have noticed he has been very active past few days and last night he bit my wife and tried to strangle her hand. We thought he may be hungry so gave him a tiny mouse
Can someone please tell me what size mice should we be feeding him and how often thank you

Post a pic with something of known size in the same image so we can gauge his actual size. I would think he may need bigger though. Tiny mice at a year doesn't sound right.

Hard to say without seeing him, but probably a weaner or hopper a fortnight/weekly depending how big it is already

Against a standard pen

I’d definitely say bigger mice. My snake is about the same size, and he’s on hoppers (slightly larger than fuzzies).
