I know Balls are picky eaters. I have a female normal that is about a month old and I was told by breeder that she ate once almost 2 weeks ago and I have tried several times to feed her frozen pinkies (thawed of course) and she will put her head to it for a little while and then ignore it. I have tried to feed her at dusk and night. Any suggestions? I know the breeder fed her a live pinkie, but I can't find a live one where I live. Just worried. She seems active, docile and friendly. She also doesn't like water will appreciate any feedback on this as well. I am a new snake owner and just want her to have the best longest life she can have. I am loving being a snake owner, coolest pet I have ever owned.
Thanks,
Mike
