i have posted on here before about my 3ft. female gator. since the last of september, she has reduced feeding. she is only eating a few times a month now( a weanling rat,a piece or two of chicken etc.)after consulting MANY and i mean MANY breeders and dealers i get two different answers. first, i was told to raise and keep temps warm 78-81 for the water and 82-85 for air temps. this theoretically was to increase apettite. secondly, i was told by others that gators tend to go of feeding in the winter, due to barometric pressure etc.please could someone settle this debate for me and maybe give me some sound advice on what i should do. to cool the gator down or keep temps warm.
