I haven't read that. In fact, I thought it was just the opposite, you're supposed to feed them more often when they're younger.

Mine are 3.5' and 4' now, and I feed them every 10-14 days - one thawed rat each.

They need to eat more often when they are younger and larger prey less often when they get older.

Ditto to the last two posts...as they get older and their growth slows, they won't need food as often. If Jada is maintaining a good weight and has a healthy appetite, I wouldn't change anything. :)
