I purchased a Ksb 5 weeks ago at Repticon in Tampa. Since I have had him he has not eaten. His husbandry is spot on, I have tried live, F/t, tried feeding him in another a seperate tub, have tried is his enclosure. I have left a pinky in his enclosure over night many times and he still will not eat. As soon as I put the pinky in his enclosure he shows some interest. Then he just burrows back down into the aspen and just ignores the mouse. I have no idea what else to try. He is only 4 months old. Any suggestions?
My ksb for some reason only wants his food if its.moving a lot. Try nudging its food with a pen or something long so its not just a big hand. I usually have to practicly shake.its food for him to want it. Hope that helps.
I don't know how you are thawing it out, but my Hog Island acts dumb if the mouse is wet. I have to thaw it out in a zip lock bag and if any water leaks in you can either forget it or he will take FOREVER. He'll grab it and constrict but then won't eat or takes forever.
My KSB on the other hand doesn't care. Wet, dry, moving, totally still, whatever. I think I could put a drawing of a mouse near her and she'd eat the paper LOL
Anyway, just throwing it out there. It took me a while to figure out my hog island requiring DRY food. :-\
