Rub it on the prey item 8)

For example it's supposed to be a good way of getting picky hognoses to eat when they hatch. I tried that with mine but rubbing the pinkies with trout seemed to work better : victory:

I have seen it used to encourage snakes whose natural diet is fish or amphibians. basically scent the mouse/rat with stinky tuna juice to get a feeding response. :D

take one pink, dip its butt in the juice from a tin of tuna..offer to snake.
You can also wash the pink then soak over night in the juices to really impregnate the pink.

For best results leave the open can for a few days before using it. Stinks REALLY bad but apparently it is far more effective when it's older.

I say apparently as i have only managed to wait 1 day before using it (which worked with a giant hognose)
