I have been breeding snakes quite some time now and I know the bigger the female the more eggs you are likly to get. To get the female bigger a lot of people "power feed" them. Personally I do not "power feed" any of my animals as I think it is unhealthy to do so. That is just my opinion. I also did some research on this subject and found out that many snakes that are power fed dont live near as long as a snake that is feed a normal size meal every 7-10 days. I was wondering if anyone else has heard anything about the snakes not living a long. Just thought this would be a good topic to discuss because personally I know people that do power feed there reptiles and I just wanted to see what people had to say about this.
