I changed Alice’s feeding schedule to a 3 week interval from the previous 2 week interval due to health considerations. At her last checkup, she tipped the scales at over 7lbs. While her weight is still within a healthy range for her build/species, she should not be adding weight at the rate she was. The previous order of medium rats were more consistently on the higher end of medium rat size and likely contributed to the additional weight gain. Fatty deposits around the heart are just as dangerous for snakes as it is for humans. This is why it is so important to keep track of your snakes vitals and make adjustments as needed.
