  1. Snakes
    I had a lot of trouble getting my corn snake to eat when I first got him, tried various techniques but nothing worked, I finally tried Tuna scenting and placing the snake in a small container with the mouse and this worked, since then it's still the only way he'll take food from me. I have him...

    Hi all, We bought our hognose at the start of October think he was around 2 month old when we got him. He fed fine every week and was very energetic, but he has refused to eat the past 2 weeks, tried scenting and leaving it in his tank over night, but still no luck. Went to check up on him today...

    She's a two year old cal king and I got her out for a morning mooch around and she starts smelling herself like she would with her food. At one point I thought she was going to bite herself. Anyone know why she does it? Or do i just have a narcissistic serpent who loves herself? Also, she keeps...

    A couple of my royals have become very picky eaters and I have tried everything: Rats, Mice, chicks, Multi's and yet still no success. However, I have heard about scenting? Has anyone had any success with this? What do you scent the rodents with? Would "Cod oil" be ok? Thanks guys :)

    I've had her nearly three weeks now, and have tried three times to feed her, all without success. Granted, the first attempt was too soon after I obtained her (I only waited three days, because she seemed so settled, I thought I'd try)..after that failed, I waited a week, and tried again. This...

    We have a cat who is about 7 months old now, had her since she was 9 weeks. She's lived indoors up until now, so isn't spayed yet. She was always really good with using the litter tray, except for quite soon after we got her, she did a wee on the living room rug, which we can't put back down...

    Since Kempton when I picked up my new Hoggie she was being a right pain in the bum when it came to feeding, so every 5 days I was defrosting more and more pinkies and trying all the usual methods to get it to feed, and time after time she would turn her nose up. So decided to try tuna scenting...

    My Dumerils, who hasn't fed since I moved house at the start of July, has finally decided to take some food! :no1:. He would only take jumbo mice before he started his fast so i thought I was fighting a losing battle trying to convert him to rats, as he had shown no interest in them at all in...
