It's a challenge :D I spent a little while last night trying to get my amel to be handled! when i first got her she was more than happy to come out. For a little while she's been acting weird about it though. Last night she kept trying to tag me :D Was quite funny.

Maybe its coming up to shed trace?

Cara if you want him to take rats try defrosting the rat in with a mouse or rubbing the scent of the mouse onto the rat.. works sometimes!

I dunno are they any better for him?? He seems perfectly happy on a couple of mice at a time, I'm not really fussed as long as hes eating!! I'v not been tagged yet... not really looking forward to it lol, just dont wanna hurt the snake coz my instant reaction would be to pull away & that can break their teeth cant it??

Nah mate, it shed 2 weeks ago, then again a few days ago. Looking really nice if i do say so myself. I think it's just a bit stroppy!

Must be female :lol: !

Cara, Rats do have better nutritional value but to be honest there are many snakes that just take mice. All my snakes are on rats apart from my corn. The size difference between a rat and mouse just wouldn't fit right so he's staying on mice!

I might try scenting it then just to see if he will take, i think it may have been a bit big for him so may try him on a smaller one & defrost it with a mouse, most of my snakes are coming up to shed so they're all being irritable b*stards lol except Charlie (my blokes cali king) shes the most tame snake in the world, she doesn't even mind bein picked up & handled when her eyes r completely blue bless her! :D
