A little over a year ago I got a hypomelanistic corn snake. It’s it now 3ft 8 1/2 inches. I recently started feeding him 3 fuzzies. I went to the store to go up a size but it look a little bigger than what I’m feeding him now. Should I move up or stay. I don’t want it to get constipated because that’s what happened to my last ball python and I had to get it surgery cause to got too constipated and the python’s insides coming out.

Thank you for your question. If your snake is almost 4 feet long, it should be able to handle adult mice. You can always start with small adults to see how your snake does. If you have any doubts, it's always better to feed multiple small food items rather than one large one.

I hope this answers your question, and thank you for contacting Ask an Expert.
