I am looking to add a snake to my collection that I know will alway eat the f/t small rat or medium to large mouse that my boa may reject on occasion. What would you recommend as a good consistent eater?
Carpets pythons, false water cobras, boas, and olive pythons will destroy any food at any time just make sure that the animal is safe to consume a meal of that size.
Kingsnakes i second, eat multiple times a week, in blue or not. Smash everything you give them!
King snakes are good garbage disposals. I have a couple of corn snakes who are always willing to take an item someone rejected. I don’t have experience with the species Riley mentioned but I would add that male colubrids can go on hunger strike during breeding season. If you want a colubrids garbage disposal you could probably get a retired female who would be happy to eat everything you throw her way.
Great! Thank you everyone!
One other addition are pituophis. Bulls and pines attain decent size and are garbage cans. Plus their food drive is hilariously terrifying.
I would say Boa Constrictor due to my female eating anything in front of her but my male will only eat fresh killed after it sits a while. Same with my corns some eat great and others dont. it seems like you almost have to just roll the dice lol.
