:I believe a friend of mine is overfeeding his Juvenile Crotalus V. H.

:He is feeding it about 1 adult mouse every week! He isnt even letting it wholey digest it's last meal, in hopes of growing it big fast.

:Could you guys give me some input about this, and any possible complication that could arise?


Most people over feed their crot's. They have the same problem with FAT as we do.
Fatty degeneration of the liver , Gout and heart attacts. Growing
them to fast makes for a short life. Nothing looks worse than
a male crot that looks gravid. Buzz
