    So, I went to visit my friend over the weekend.
    She has 2 snakes, ball pythons, that are about 13 years old.
    Her female will eat frozen/thawed, but her male won't and requires to be fed live.
    So, she'll go to the pet store and ask for mice.

    Well, her male wasn't interested in eating. She HATES feeding live, and ONLY does it because her snake won't eat either way.
    She picked up some mice, and he wouldn't eat them. She BEGGED me to take them. So I did.

    So, now I have teh pet mice. And SOOO CUTE they are.
    I named them Henney Buggy and Mayor Finn. I ended up separating them because they are both males, and I guess male mice will eventually get aggressive to the point where one or both will end up dead.

    Get ready for teh CUTE.

    Henney poking his head out.

    "O, this be teh nomz??? Maybe?"

    "maybee we can haz teh nomz up here?"

    "Water iz gud."

    "O hai. I haz a climb"

    "I haz an eat. OM NOM NOM."

    "Now I haz a travel."


    "I getz all inside teh bowl 2 haz an eat."

    "I may not be teh best at anything." hehehehe, he looks like he's holding an old microphone.

    very cute! I need to get a rat for my ball python. She's out of hibernation and ready for dinner. :D She will only take live as well. I've found myself in the situation where she wont eat a couple times, I end up donating the rat back to the pet store.

    Very pretty boys. My pet store's feeders are all white, black, or brown/white. No fancy colors... I've known a few mice to be very sweet pets.

    Congrats on the new additions :D I would have named them after food. lol

    Picky Ball Pythons. lol. My male is also picky (they do live up to that rep, lol) and I was hitting a couple of months of him not eating (luckily I have a corn that eats thawed no problem so they were not wasted) I switched to frozen rats.. and he loved them. It's worked on a lot of different BP's, seems to do the trick for picky snakes. lol You can also try frozen gerbils/small rabbits.

    but seeing as how they probably lived together at the pet store, it wouldn't be much of a problem keeping them together :)
    hope this helps! they are CUTE! :D

    Not my experience... Raised litters of males together, as they matured, though in a small cage, the fights were vicious.
  9. We have a ball python that was surrendered to animal control, Sir Hiss. He eats frozen mice, but I still can't stand to watch my husband feed him :puke:
