Feeding all the colubrids!!!

Post  Shadraak on Sun Jun 27, 2010 11:28 pm

Well it was Colubrid feeding time tonight , try to do it every sunday night if i can, as i'm still worried about my little hognose i put some pics of her next to the 2 smallest pinks i had, she's now in a deli cup in her own cage with the pink and hopefully will be gone in the morning if not i dunno what to do.

Baby Hognose : 3grams,



Big boy: 65grams,(on his 2nd hopper)



Bloodred:



Anery: First rat pink



Snow: First rat pink


can't belive how big it's getting already

Have you tried twitching the pinks for the hognose? How do you warm them up? How much do you warm them up?

If you have tried twitching the mice, what else have you tried? I've had some experience with enticing reluctant snakes to feed; I'll try to help. Others may have had even more experience.

I'm so sorry! Sounds like some force feeding might have helped, or making a slurry and using a syringe to get it down, just to get her going. But maybe not, too; some just won't eat for whatever reason.

Good luck finding another. Did you check out the vendor from whom you bought her on the Board of Inquiry? If the vendor has a good rep on BOI, then he/she will probably work with you on a replacement.
