what did you do to switch him, if you dont mind me asking, or did he just decide they actually do look tasty!!!

reason i ask is one of my males has just begun feeding but only on gerbils and at £3 each i could do with switching him back to mice/rats.

never understand why people use gerbils enough patience and you will get them to feed on rats or mice gerbils are to expensive and not always easy to obtain

one of my females will only eat gerbils no matter what i try to switch her over on to rats
£3 is a lot to pay for them i get mine for the same as a large mouse.

Just tried and tried.
I started by offering a gerbil then a mouse strait after...he would usually just bite the mouse and release.
after doing this many times he got into the regime, or so it seemed,

I then started thawing the gerbils with the mice. and feeding them after.
then last night i just placed a mouse in there and he ate it LOL
