That is wonderful news and I am so glad she ate !!!

You did great and my next suggestion was to try live. Over the years I had some young bloods that had to be "jump started" on live. Now that she has struck and eaten, she should take FT in her next feeding or so. Those bloods have a fast and wicked strike and can move fast when they want to. I have a huge six foot black blood that seems to shake the house when he strikes his food. Always a rush feeding him.

Many years ago some of the reptile pros told me that bloods like cooler temps as they live in swamps and marshes. Though most tropical boas & pythons come from hot areas, they hide in cooler places during the day and come out at night. The cool sides of my cages range from 71-75 and that is where the snakes stay most of the time. The only time I see them in the hot zone is when digesting a meal. Over the years I have found that feeding small to moderate food items is easier on the snake and promotes long, healthy lives. Bill
