Re: Patience

I had a litter of milk snake babies that would not eat until I brumated them.

I placed them in my basement in a cool dark corner for a few weeks, then I brought them upstairs and warmed them back up, presto - later that day they all took an extra small pinkie.

In all it was almost half a year before these babies had interest in feeding.

Did not lose one.. I sold all of them but one, and he's still doing great. What a slow growing species too, That snake is 4 years old and just now takes rat pinkies.

Patience... is a good thing.

People who molest their animals constantly are stressing the poor reptiles to death.
mo·lest. 1. To disturb, interfere with, or annoy.
