I have a BP that is about 61/2 months. I have been feeding her frozen, thawed hoppers but the last couple days she is like going thru a growth spurt. 2 hoppers Monday and 1 Tuesday. What would be the next size up in a rat? Thanks for your help.

I don't know what your local sellers label their rats as, but just get the next size up.

Next time you are buying, visually just look for something that is slightly larger (rat or mouse variety) and try it out . If unsure or nothing appropriate stick with what it is currently feeding on. Don't worry about specific labels or exact sizes.

since we are in Australia and can't keep ball pythons, we can't help as much as we'd like to but try ball-pythons.net :) good luck with your scaly friend
