lool its my first snake aswell, so i was really happy, have you tried slitting the brain of the pinky? Apperently it gives of a chemical that the snake is attracted to?? hope that helps! where do you feed her?

linzii 24-08-2009 03:47 PM

i know, i read that. i hope she takes it though. i really dont want to split the brain. shes lives in the kitchen. so once i feed her i go in and shut the door so shes not disturbed.

i was also gonna suggest, do you know where she was fed before you had her e.g in a small RUB or in her viv?

i just got a corn taht hadnt eaten for months, what i did was warmed the rat pup up in boiling water...in a bag so didnt get wet so it was almost boiling to the touch brained it and then put it in with the snake who was already in live food tub ( the snake is 2ft) so you get that it needs to be in a small tub so it has nowere else to go! hope this helps
