I would wait the next week if your unsure when he ate or you can call the breeder and ask. When I got my albino burm and red tail as babies the breeder gave me their feeding charts. Some animals won’t shed until their use to their enclosure and since its a baby you can feed every week but when it gets bigger less often...I feed my larger snakes every 14 days. And congrats on the new retic the lav tiger morph is really pretty I’ve heard.

You don’t have to wait until his first shed to feed. Feed him right away so he’ll grow and shed out his old skin.

Taz ...question

Did he eat before the first shed??? Most snakes don’t...and they survive off the yolk they ingested at birth. Even corn snakes will not eat until they shed first. That is the signal for us to offer the first meal.

I really want to know your answer. Hope you reply.
