:I doubt parasites are the cause because your lil guys are cb. It probabaly has to due with the food. If my easterns are on toads, I feed them twice a week. If they are on mice, I feed them once a week. It's like comparing a fillet of fish to a big meaty steak. Mice are a lot more filling and fatty. It seems that it is too much for the lil guys to handle. Try feeding one pink per feeding. If that dont work, 1 pink a week. Keep temps in the mid-upper 70's and a basking spot in the low 80's.

Just because the animal is CB doesn't mean it doesn't have parasites. A lot of CB hogs are started on amphibians and if they are they may very well have parasites. Anytime you have a regurge problem it's a good idea to have a fecal exam done. All the things that have been mentioned can cause regurge (temp to high or low, over feeding, parasites). I would say over feeding a hog is the least likely thing to cause regurge (most when eating will eat until their bodies can't hold anymore, with no problem). IMHO
