Re: my childrens python is eating

I agree with ID and would advise against feeding wild caught prey to your snake. I've also read about the potential for parasites or diseases that could be harmful to captive snakes. Do you have access to live mice, rats, or chicks from a pet store or breeder? If not, now that you know he will eat, I'd just keep at it with your f/t rodents. Some snakes are harder to transition from live to f/t, or switching from mice to rats, but almost all will eat eventually. Sometimes it just takes a few months of tough love.
