Yeh i fed mine evening time, i woke her up a little bit before just giving it to her! I fed her in a small tub that i had. she looked around for a few seconds then smelt the mouse and started feeding!

:2thumb: Yay good to hear! it could be because she was a bit more awake aswell! im happy for you lol. By the way your corn looks identical to mine lol hopefully ill have pics soon.

The only downside now is that you cant handle her for a good 24 hours lol

aw im chuffed for you, braining isnt as bad either is it!? just me left to get mine to feed ....persistance over comes resistance!!

linzii 24-08-2009 04:59 PM

thanks guys. no wasnt so bad. just used the tongs to keep it held down and used a knife that we dont use for family meals.

I think the problem is more if the snake is unable to swallow it because the front legs get stuck at the side of the mouth, so as long as he has swallowed it I shouldn't think there would be a problem.
My royal took a mouse once sideways, ended up folding it in half to eat it! lol stupid thing! :D

Does it really matter?
She seems to be fine?

Don't worry about it, a couple of mine have done / still do this. As long as they're eaing fine there's no problem.
