Well it depends on his activity level and how long he maintains the buldge in his abdomen. As you probably know, they are snakes that travel about almost on a daily basis seeking food, shelter and whatever, so more food may increase his desire to crawl about verses lay back and digest. If he is crawing about during the day and starts to shed often then you are doing the right thing although every ten days seems quite long. I would suggest try every 5 days and he will be better off perhaps. Also offer other foods such as lizards and frogs and toads or what ever he might eat, but freeze them first to kill the diseases. If he ever becomes injured because he is restless and wants out, then let him go as he is a big snake that needs a lot of room.
