i voted yes, but i only do it for some species. i.e the oxybelis will only take the mice if its dry and warm. with things like the boas i dont bother, because they will take just about anything

Only on the rare occasions when my royal didn't take normally warmed mice. It worked though!

I've only tried it once when my kingsnake hadn't eaten for 2 weeks. Didn't make any difference for me.

I use one for all my Royals. They come out looking as soon as I switch it on, even to dry my hair! lol
They now associate the hair drier with food. I sometimes use it for the corns too if the defrosts seem a bit chilly
