Hi everyone,


I have recently hatched two Leopard Rat Snakes, and will be getting them sexed at the weekend.


I understand that males in particular can be difficult to get feeding. Certainly, I have to cool my adult male down during the winter (regardless of whether I'm breeding him) as he stops feeding in October, and won't re-start until he's been brumated.


My question is, if one or both of my hatchlings is male and they continue to refuse food, should I give them an early wintering for a month or so to get them kicked off, or simply keep offering until October and then put them to bed at the same time as their father?


Thanks for advising.




Tim.
