    I don't know if it's as big of a deal as I am making it out to be, but I am SUPER EXCITED that...

    Lichenn (my new baby ball python, remember? LOL) successfully had her first meal with me today!! :D

    I hear a lot of horror stories about people having trouble getting their baby snakes to eat for the first time.. and the pet store hadn't fed the babies yet, so it was a complete unknown.

    Pictures to come later! :D

    Congrats, are you using live of frozen? I know if I feed frozen I have to dethaw it and throw it at my snake before shell even think about it. She was three when we got her and hadn't ever eaten anything other than live.

    I was told I wasn't supposed to answer that question LOL

    I will only feed live. I'm sorry, but the "risks" involved just don't make enough sense to me to keep dead mice in my freezer, thaw them out, and move them with tweezers to get my snake to eat them lol If you can't handle feeding live, that's fine.. I don't have a problem with people who feed F/T, just don't ream me for feeding live and we won't have a problem :D

    I feed live also. Unless the store is out, then I will get a baby gerbil that got beat up and died and was frozen. So you aren't alone! I just know it takes a lot of prodding for me to get mine to eat something thats already dead.

    Woo, I'm not alone! lol

    I just don't see the point in trying to make a wild animal that would normally hunt and kill its prey.. eat something that's already dead? lol
