I have some D. scabra, and have worked with D. medici, but I've only been doing this for a few months, and I'm not a pro. Some people have luck with assist-feeding, which is placing a finch egg in the snake's mouth and handling it very gently or putting it down very gently as it swallows it.

Also check out the Yahoo Group on Dasypeltis. Go to Yahoo Groups, and then search for "Egg-Eater" - type exactly that into the search field or it'll be hard to find. There are a few real pros in the group, and all imaginable questions about egg eater care have been covered in past messages.

Good luck,
Billy Brown
