Now you're going to have so many moths to feed, you can send your laticincta my way ;)

Great snakes.

They don't look like hatchlings. How old are they?

@Wes, I might have room for a couple more before I'll send my laticincta off to you haha... :D

They are now just over a year old and pounding small rats already.

Louis, these are eating-machines and you need to keep a check on their weights and avoid that feeding response! Mine are of a similar age (possibly same batch) and are on large, weaned rats. Fed them weaned to adult mice for the 1st few feeds and then moved on to rat pups from there. In reality, they'll eat anything! Stunning and easy species to keep and deserves more attention. They are interesting to watch and certainly respond and react to their keeper.

Enjoy

Really amazing Louis. How big are they at a year old? From my completely uneducated position I would think weaner rats would be quite a small feed, because don't womas get quite big? (bigger than a carpet python for example) Or are they very slender compared to a carpet python of a similar age?

Anyway, very awesome Louis!

Thanks tAnYa1606 and Hoss...

Hoss, they are around 70cm or so if I have to take a guess at a year of age (note my guessing sucks). Womas are not large by python standards and usually average around 1.5-1.7m as adults but can go quite a bit larger. Mitton will be the one to answer your last question tho haha... ;)

I'll post some pics tomorrow so you can get a better idea of size.
