How big should a corn be in order to eat a fuzzy?

it goes by weight; you'll need a scale in order to find out.

The Munson Plan is a good feeding guide to use, but I would alter it a bit as it tends to be a little aggressive for most snakes, so I altered the plan so that the snake would go up in pray size after it was 10 extra grams over the weight that's on the munson plan.

for hoppers my chart says my snake should be 55 grams, but this has again been majorly altered as the shop I get feeders from only sells pinksys, fuzzys, hoppers and adult mice.

so I had to make each feeder period last a but longer than usual but it seems to be working well for me so far.


- another way to go about it would be to get the fuzzy and see if its 1 and a half times the size of the thickest part of the snake, this is also a good guideline to go by.

I hope this helps! :)
