I wonder, I wonder, I wonder, if there is any relationship betwen the mother and her eggs with the passing of information genetically that could influence the foods that the offspring eat. In other words, maybe the mother has been eating mice so long that it is somehow passed on to offspring that is what they want to eat also. Maybe it could have to do with the material the mother makes the egg shells out of and the babies spend their 60 - 70 days smelling/tasting that material. Interesting questions. Something has got to trigger the babies. Anyone out there know???????? Maybe some of our more learned herpers can tell us what the scientific community has determined.
