Nagini took her first rat!

The last couple of times I offered her a rat, before she went into the shed she completed today, she had absolutely no interest and I relented and gave her a mouse.

But tonight, after she shed out, I offered her a weaned rat that I thawed in hot water together with a mouse, and she nailed it with all her usual voraciousness! Of course I suppose it helped that she hadn't eaten in 3 weeks because of being in shed...

Congrats! It's always a relief when they finally make the switch. Hopefully she keeps that up for you.

Re: Nagini took her first rat!

Congrats! Let's keep the streak going! Now that you know she'll eat a rat don't let her see another mouse until she has a really strong imprint with rats. They'll eat anything if they're hungry enough.

Re: Nagini took her first rat!

Offered Nagini her second weaned rat at tonight's feeding. I didn't scent it this time. I decided to set the mug I was thawing her weaned rat in on the cabinet next to the front corner of her viv to let her smell it while it thawed and she was a riot! She was pacing back and forth in front of the glass, stretching up to the top of the viv, tongue flicking like mad and then when I finally started the Amazing Zombie Ratling Puppet Show she struck in seconds and wrapped it so hard I could barely get the forceps out! I guess she's a confirmed ratter now!

Re: Nagini took her first rat!

This is why I try to get them on rats immediately after I get them, it's just so much easier that way instead of doing a transition.
