I'm sure this is no new news for the seasoned vets..but here goes. I have 1.1 young adult Mangroves..imports. I did get them to feed once on thawed hopper mice w/chick down stuck on their heads..subsequent tries were ignored as were live hoppers and live African Soft Furred rat pups. I went back into the old play book and split brained some hopper mice and made sure plenty of cranial fluid was all over the head - both wolfed immediately..one actually took one from tongs! This was a week ago and both fed again w/out hesitation last night employing the same tactic. Thought there might be some frustrated Mangrove keepers out there who might give this a try.
