Re: Switching new young BP to f/t

BPs can be very finicky. But like you said, they can vary greatly animal to animal. If it was me and my snake I would go live for the first one or two meals. Then i would try to switch.

And also, with young BPs especially, I always wait until a new snake has eaten three consecutive meals without refusal before handling. Obviously a little here and there while cleaning, checking on him, etc...but no handling sessions yet. With a juvenile BP, there's 25+years of handling in the future, a few weeks won't kill me.
