Oh you would not believe what I have tried with this girl. And if I had to be honest I think some of it is my doing. As you know I got her from Max Peterson as a wild caught on his land in North Texas. Well when I got her she was a little finicky but not to bad. Well the summer was winding down and I wanted to put some good weight on her for the spring so I could get good healthy eggs. So one day I offered her a rabbit fuzzy as one of my small retics would not eat that day. She immediatly ate it like she had never eaten before. So a few days later I gave her another one and the same thing. I figured heck I am going to give her what she wants to eat at least she will gain weight. Well she did eat good and gained weight. Well guess what? That is the ONLY thing she will eat now. I breed fancy mice and rats and have every color under the rainbow. I have a freezer full of chicks and she turns her nose up at all of them no matter the color, live, or frozen. So know I am finding myself in the same situation. I am going to start giving her rabbit fuzzies every 4-5 days for the next 6 weeks to get some fat back on her so she is ready for brumation and possibly eggs next year. This snake has not eaten a rat or mouse in almost a year after attempts every few days. I have even tried scening rats with rabbit and the whole mess involved with that. She looks at me as if to say "forget it man just give me the rabbit" Her cage has branches and all kinds of fun stuff. Her cage thing is fit for a zoo. She will on occation come out and pirch under the light but for the most part she lays under her log pile waiting for me to toss her a rabbit. I love her anyway!!! LOL
