Re: VBB not eating.

This sounds just like my 0.1 2yr old Hogg Island, it's was very tempermental the other day, hissing at me constantly. During the last feeding, it hissed, bit, but released the rat pup I offered it; so, it goes hungry until the next feeding cycle.

If he actually gets a solid bite, it will trigger feeding, but that is rare.
