My niece has several snakes, and she showed me their feeding time routine. I helped her to feed a ball python and other pet snakes.
Feeding a Ball Python
All of my niece’s pet snakes are used to eating frozen/thawed food, and since each of them require a mouse or rat in a different size, it makes their feeding easier to handle.
For me, this was the first time in many years since I held a snake, and the first time ever feeding a ball python, so I got really excited.
Here are the snakes that she got. The ball python was the most impressive, but the hognose snake was my favorite. It’s so cute!
