I have a fairly inadequate set of hemostats. The GTP is six years old, looking around four and half to five feet long. I am thinking that perhaps I am impatient when it comes to feeding frozen/thawed - although the previous owner informed me that he had always been fed live rats, just by dropping them in the tank.


>>If you live near a show, get some large hemostats or tweezers. You didn't indicate how large your animal was, so I assume you are "hand feeding" a very small chondro(yearling or less). FWIW, I have only seen one chondro out of hundreds, that has refused frozen thawed rodents. They are almost always problem free when it comes to feeding established animals.

>>Good luck.
