 Feeding while prego

Okay I have a 8 and a half foot "believed to be gravid" female she’s still has an appetite what’s the general opinion on feeding her? And also her post ovulation shed was march 17 should she be showing by now? Plus she’s shedding again is that normal?

You’re pretty safe feeding her up until about 6 weeks from her due date. She may or may not show much at this time...did you see the ovulation?

If she’s carrying a small litter, or a litter of unfertilized ova she may not get very big at all.

But IMO if she’s not showing much, still has a good appetite and is shedding again, I’d bet that she’s not gravid or she’s going to slug out. But I could be wrong.
