Fuzzy vs hopper
 
Hi all...I have a 1.5 year old corn snake that I feel I've may e been under feeding (she just moved to fuzzy mouse last week) After she figured out what it was she took her first fuzzy like a champ...Should I just be upping to a hopper right away? I'm not comfortable basing it off my own judgment if it's 1.5x it's body as Im still fairly new...Today is feeding day and I dont want to starve her...I still have 4 pinkies I'd hate to just toss...Should I just stick to another fuzzy and throw in a pinkie as well if she takes it? Thanks all

Can you weigh her with a gram scale? She probably isn't ready for hoppers if she just moved up to fuzzies. Since they only grow as much as they're fed, even if her age typically would be eating larger meals, she may not be ready for them and you wouldn't want to risk a regurge from overfeeding her. However, if you want to give her a little growth spurt, you can up her feeding frequency to every 5 days. As for the leftover pinkies, you could do two feedings of double pinkies, 5 days apart, and then put her back on a single fuzzy every 5 days.
