I breed easterns, and have to agree that the best advise is to provide 3 inch deep bedding and HEAT, I have a trio of yearlings that I hatched from my breeders and their doing fine but I did have to force feed them baby anoles at first, for three or four months, I would gently wedge the dead baby lizerds head into their mouth and then quickly but gently place it back into the cage and back away, in ten minutes or so they would have it down on their own. When they get HOT they eat whatever moves in the cage, also the deep bedding will give them a secure feeling and reduces stress and "baby snake stress" is tough to beat, hatchlings are pre-programed to strike and bite every thing that moves, Also they love to be held outside in the sunlight, and will, after the initial panic of being removed from their cage, calm down and go into a sort of trance right in your hand, some are now reluctant to even retreat under their bedding when I approach their cage, seems they lost their fear of me, they like the sun! REMEMBER "HEAT = EAT" especially with the longtailed snake family of Racers and Coachwhips and Indigos.JB
