Hi

I'm a little worried about my royal, she stike feeds everytime perfectly, however tonight she missed 5 times and it ended up with her just sort of taking the rat gently out of the feeding tongs. I did everything as normal, same size of feed, and warmed it slightly under hte lamp. Just a lillte worried about her and would like to know that this is normal ??

Thanks

I've found royals quite often miss if the food's not warmed up sufficiently. Even then sometimes they do.

I swear i thought one of my royals was blind for a while, he missed nearly every time even if though the mice were always warm!

You want to get yourself a hognose then you will find out what missing a strike realy is, they are usless they have crap aim and then normaly take thier food bum first or sideways.
GREAT SNAKE THOUGH
