I have to second on the misting issue. They really need to be "drowned" by mist periodically.

Mine thrive in a 75-78F enviroment. Spagnum moss has allways worked best for me as I can keep it soaking wet...and there is something about it that retards body rot (less of an issue if the snake heads for ground cover).

Even so, I have some wags that have been problems to start and one who has never eaten a voluntary meal in its life. With a tiny netonate sometimes teasing isn't enough. That is something that you have to take in consideration because if you have to force feed it is a dangerous option.

Fortunately for me, my babies eventually all went to voluntary feeding this year.
