Re: Advice to get new ball python to eat?


There are allot of guy here with allot of animals, and allot of knowledge who are trying to help.

Anyhow, if you haven't tried this:
> thaw the rodent on a piece of white paper towel for aa couple of hours before you it's it in the hit water. When you put the rat in the hot water, toss the stinky paper towel in tank within 6 inches of your snake and walk away for a few minutes. Hopefully this might get your snake hunting around a little. When the rat is hot enough, offer it but just hold it there. (You wiggle it...try not shaking it)

That's gotten problem feeders going when we've had issues in the past.

Good luck.
