Why s nskae does not eat is such a brad question.

it is hard for me to know what conditions and husbandry a person has unless I actually go to their house and SEE IT!.. this question has been asked of me several times and all I can say is they were eating find for me when they left my hands, so why would they not eat after receiving.

This is another reason FR posts the way he does. There is no cookie cutter method. What he is trying to do is get people to think for themselves. To understand the snake rather than just say they have the perfect setup. Sometimes there are small details missed. I can easily detect those when I go to see the conditions. But trying to describe them over the phone or via internet is like someone describing the color and pattern of a snake they saw in their backyard..ever had that happen? LOL!

This 2 day to a week waiting period after receiving s kingsnake is what most do after receiving a new snake.. and I suggest to my customers feed the day of arrival. Why? Because I know the day it left me it would eat. My snakes are my own.. They don't come from somebody else and I do not buy other peoples collection. I worked with my colonies for years and I am not a broker, high end pet dealer or newbie. So I know my snakes.

What changes when they arrive at someone elses place is beyond me.. And a general description of the cage size, water bowl and temps do not always tell the whole story.

My snakes eat when they arrive and if they eat that day then all is on its new owner.
