Its good to know Glades is working with the pink coachwhips. I also really like the picture of your pink one a few posts below. That thing is awesome. Mine are all a brown ground color with some white tipping. I caught my coachwhips as yearlings locally in the Dallas area and like you say they were difficult to get feeding on rodents. I had to hunt down lizards as a food source for the first several months. After many attempts and scenting rodents they all finally switched. But what I find interesting is that once they switch there is no more issues. They will eat rodents with gusto after that initiall one. The adults I come accross in the wild I just let be as they make really bad captives at least for me. They never eat and thrash and run like crazy. I have a trio of youngsters that are actually calm and I hope to grow into nice breeders in a few years. Below is a picture of my favorite girl. I hope more people work with these guys in the future.
