Hi all, I'm a milksnake guy and have fine success with the most obnoxious alterna or milks but may have met my match with conspicillata.
The breeding was a snap, lovely little hatchlings, but 3/4 of the hatch has avoided every form of mouse or rat introduced. The frozen lizard zoo was tapped also to no avail.
On the upside, one female took to pinks and is thriving and her sibs will swallow a pink when I park it in their mouths but they'll never grab a pink. They're all healthy and fine but we've been doing this now for a solid year....

Any advice for keeping these hatchlings happy? Any special rodent scent that triggers the feeding response?

Temps are in the upper 70s, good hides, adults are stout and active so I assume the basic husbandry is being met.
Any suggestions are appreciated and thanx in advance! Jeff
