    feeding time questions... storeki decays. and a sad part:/

    So last july mama snake had babys 11 of them but all of them but 4 must've had birth defects cause death happen one after another one which i made a thread about it before.

    The 4 that made it had no issues at all healthy ate like a pig shed healthy etc which they about 1year and 2 months now. Which we been feeding them cut up worms every 2 days sometimes 3 days at times.

    Till today which been 3 days sense we fed them sense at times we like to give them a day extra break. one was just laying there dead and limpy and the cage stink really bad:/ healthy looking snake too has weight to him shiny etc...... Soo really i have no idea how it died unless a birth defect but just took longer too happen..

    So really it had us thinking about eating times which i very doubt that's why he died. But just to ease our minds is 2 to 3 days each time a good time to feed them or should we wait longer? They about 8 too 9inchs long at the moment maybe around 10.

    We very hurt after seeing one of them die sense we had them over a year now too.. They very active and look right up at you and they always out in the open too unlike what i hear about them always hiding and also what to craw on your hands when you feed them:/

    Another thing we need to find out what breed they are having a bit trouble with that.. So we can separate the boy or girls So they wont have babys..

    If i post pics of them can anyone know what they are?

    Now mama snake she also doing great! fights with her worm before she eats it crazy to watch lol sheds a healthy whole shed when she ready and also very active and out in the open most of the time.

    They will be too small to be visually sexed. It will be at least a year before you can.

    They are not just snakes. They're garter snakes.

    So they will have to be about 2 years before you can visually tell each sex? when do they usely mature to get pregnant?

    also is their eating habits good too keep right now? every 2 days and sometimes we wait till the 3rd day too feed them. which we cut in pieces smaller than their head which is about 20 to 30 pieces and they all go at it pretty much the habit we kept for the year and 2 months and at times want us to hand feed them lol and they have them gone in 5 to 10 minutes lol
