Great news .... I had an Albino Royal go about 8 months without eating many years ago . Crazy thing is she only lost a couple of ounces in weight and always looked real healthy and active throughout the whole time.Yeah been keeping them for nearly 2 years now, it is a big relief when they break out of not eating!
I've got six Royals ... Two of them practically take my arm off as I wiggle the rat/mouse in front of them , two others ( Albino pair ) are both strike feeders , as well, but seem to take a few strikes to latch on to the rodent ...the other two are drop feeders and will only eat when I leave the room and give them a bit of peace ... Weird .I just find it strange how you can keep a number of royals all in the same conditions etc and some are just stubborn feeders. I use to keep them in rubs then swapped to vivs. My normal het albino that hadn't fed with me since I had her started feeding but my spinner stopped all the way up untill now. I did read an article explaining that sometimes swapping cages triggers them too feed.
