I caught a wild eastern banded hatchling a little over 2 months ago. I've tried every method reccomended short of assist feeding. She is definately not interested in pinkies or scented pinkies live or f/t. About 2 weeks ago, however, in order to get a feeding response i put a Georgia brown snake(decayed?) roughly her size and possibly larger. she ate it in 2 hours. I do have a brazilian long tailed lizard that's been living in there for a week now, however i am not getting a feeding response. they have become friends. I would rather not continue to feed her snakes. Does anyone have any other ideas? Also, how long can the newborn survive on a snake it has eaten that is equal size?
