Is 300 grams of rats OK for a 6 1/2 ft Bull?

I'm thinking of moving up from 6 mouse size rats to 2 150 gram rats for my Bull.

I tried to give him a medium rat (I told the pet shop he's a 6 1/2 ft Bull) but I think he got spooked by it's size. He's always been fed as many as 6 mouse sized rats so he was never given one large item. I switched to 2 smaller rats and he ate those. They were still bigger than what he was used to eating.

I might try...

I might try stepping up to 3 100 gr. rats first and see how he handles them If he digests them and they don't leave too noticeable a bulge then I would try 2 150 gr. A lot depends on his girth, metabolism and how fast he processes food.

I've seen wild Bull's here in Az. with lumps the size of a rabbit in em... When they go; they go big!!! Some of my favs; but their metabolic rates are waaaaaay to fast for me.. lol.. Good luck.. And; put a big bump in em... It's ok...

6 1/2 ft. !! Try leaving your left arm in there over nite. Frozen thawed is less intimidating. Give him an hr alone w a medium rat n see how he does, bet he gulps it.
