Yeah, I figured you would definitely offer the needed humidity with humid hides and/or occasional mistings with bedding that would retain it well.... The spa sounds like a great idea too. Do you do the loose mulch tunnel tube thing with them like Bill Gilligham did many years ago to get them to breed? My imports were really seclusive like that. Captive-raised individuals will certainly be far better and easy-going, and not have quite the wild instict those guys did though.

My male only ever constricted and ate ONE adult mouse in all the years I ever owned him, but would scarf down a pile of helpless fuzzies left in the corner of the cage. If I ever moved even slightly and he knew I was there, he wouldn't feed at all. He preferred them to be left overnight in the dark so he could crawl around the cage perimeter and find them.
