Talking Ball python finaly eats!

got him on may 18 and tried to feed him the day after. he didn't want to feed and now that its nearly been a week he has finaly aten!

I fed him the incorrect way but i had to cuz i didn't want to pick him up and stress him out. Well i bought a live fuzzy (no eyes yet) and left him in the cage at night. In the morning i see my snake at the basking spot under the leaves . So i guess he ate it cuz i dont see the mouse any where!

next time i'll take him out and feed him in a box so he doesn't swollow substrate and with a frozen/thawed one.

you did a great job leving live over night is not a good thing to do but I see you specified that the eyes were not open tet so there is no real danger there just work hard to do the switch over to F/T it is well worth it. congrats!!!!

I am happy for you caus I how worried you were.

Good JoB!!! Don't stress out too much if they go long periods of time with out eating balls are notorious for that. The record is 22 months with out eating so they can fast for a long time.
Keep up the good work!
