>>all 9 in my lcutch have now taken at least 1 pinkie - thanks for the advice. had to brain a pinkie for the last hatchling. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on the amount of time for leaving alight on - i right now have the timers set for the cages lights at 8 hours while the room lights are on 12 hour periods. Do you folks allow light periods to very throughout the year or keep them constant? Just wondering as I am thinking about testing it on these snakes. Below is hopefully a pair that we breed next year.

I don't know if it helps anything or not but my snakes have lights that are set on timers with the actual sunrise and sunset....Every week I tweak it a little to match the correct times......


And...congrats for getting them all feeding....
