Back when you could only get wild caught, that would obviously usually only take live I used to worm my snakes until they were on defrosted. I did this after that time too.
I believe its illegal to feed live in the UK now but i think there are caveats.
I know ball pythons can be difficult to get started and some breeders use the caveats to save the snake and feed live initially if needed.
I have recently been in a stable position and with space to start a new snake collection.
So over the last few months have bought 14 ball pythons (not stopping there)
I only feed defrosted but don’t know about the snakes past.
So I am worried about worms
- should I be worried?
- should I worm my collection ?
- If so How and which product?
I used to divide the recommended mammal dose by the weight. Then put it in the mouse/rat butt (not a live mouses butt obviously .)
I am sure things have moved on since then.
Not talking about regular worming, just to eliminate the risk from my collection. Any advice welcome
