My rubber boa has fed well on f/t domestic mice and rat pinks all along, but after feeding from my hand the very first time I fed her, she had insisted on the food being left overnight under the warm hide. For the last two feedings, however, she has been eating from my hand. Here is a pic of her from 12/5 when I first got her...

Love the way these snakes look, feel, and behave! Their natural history is fascinating, as well (much thanks to Richard & Ryan Hoyer for sharing so much about that!).
