I prefer to feed more often than every two weeks. If she's that willing to feed, she may just want to eat every 7 to 10 days. If she's healthy and happy, then I see no reson why she shouldn't be able to breed.
What is her weight?

Good luck with that!

:I have an adult female wild caught ball python. Before everyone starts, I know the pros and cons of wild caught vs. captive born, but I rescued her about 7 years ago and she has done really well. I usually feed her 1 medium rat every two weeks. She has done well on this diet for weeks. I would like to try and breed her and was wondering if I should feed her more and if so, how much more should I feed her? She has never had any health problems during the 7 years I've had her, and always eats well. She currently has good body mass. Insight from everyone would be appreciated.
