 Prey size

My Cali king is 19-20in and I fed a fuzzie because the pinkies were small not leaving a lump how it use to but the fuzzie leaves a lump and it didn’t take long for him to eat it. Was this prey too large?? Sizing prey for colubrids can be kinda hard for me compared to boas/pythons. I read things up on large prey and the side effects and its driving me crazy. He got it down with no problem, didn’t see any bad signs either. I fed him a pinkie yesterday but being it was small he was still hungry and I don’t feed multiple prey in one sitting.

I feed multiple prey or whatever it takes to make them feel satisfied...you never post pics... so what can be said

19-20" does nothing in my mind as far as an image goes....

if the prey left a small lump and the snake was happy, it was appropriate

He’s over a foot now and he kept the fuzzy down and digested it so he should be fine on fuzzies now. Thanks for the reply
