Strange... but then again, most reptiles are... My burm won't eat rats that have spots, or are colored anything other than white. Time and time again I've had to bury an expensive dead rat because it's face was black, or there was a spot on it. No idea why he's so picky... Maybe yours is too? Sounds like maybe she was confused, or not hungry... Try it again and let us know what happens... Welcome to the site by the way!
