 Help with feeding Garder Snake

MY Garder Snake { Carpenter }is eating fuzzys now. I have been feeding Carpenter 1 fuzzy a week on Sunday. Then when I go to the Big City I get him 6-8 fish as a treat once a Month. Is 1 fuzzy a week enough food for Carpenter he is about 24 inches and can eat the fuzzys just fine. He has a fat tummy when done eating.

I was feeding him 3 pinkies 2xs a week with the fish as a treat. But now I have a Corn snake also and the Pet shop doesnt always have all the pinkies I need for Both so I put Carpenter on Fuzzys at 1xs a week since they are bigger. Carpenter wont eat worms. His diet is 4 fuzzys and a few fish each month . I just started this with him. So is this enough food for him. Please help. Thank You Bucky

 Help with feeding Garder Snake

a pinkie averages about 2 grams each and a fuzzy 5 grams so with 6 pinkies you where feeding 12 grams a week so I would say 2 fuzzys a week would be good for now. you might look into weanlings at 15 gr they would be a 1 a week feeding item. if the local pet store cant supply your needs look in to mail order frozen.

good luck
