To answer your question about which is harder to keep, in my expirence it is easier to find a blue that eats than it is to find a southern black that eats, but for every 5 i find, maybe one will except mice. most will except frogs, some never will eat. This blue made me so happy, it was my one blue that I found this year, so it was my only shot. It excepted f/t mice right away. thats luck. it eats 2 every feeding. it isn't usually that easy. What im really surprised about is that the everglades racer Ive got is just as good an eater. Ive NEVER caught another everglades that would even look at food in captivity. as for the nose rubbing on the blue, she did it while in a 40 gal breeder while I was building her new cage. its been corrected an is looking better every day. Once she got in her new cage, no more rubbing, she lives faast and has plenty of room to practice her 0 to 60 mph times. Im soo happy about these two. I really lucked out. so in summary, if you can find one that eats, keep it, but you'll probably have to go through a few before you do.
