    Afternoon everyone,

    Recently purchased 2 corns to and have been able to get the larger of the 2 to eat F/T pinkies with no problems, however the smaller of the 2 does not appear to be interested in any type of food. I am hesitant to try live pinkies with it, but even the smallest F/T pinkie I had, the snake did not want to have anything to do with it. It's been about 3 weeks now.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    First off ... Welcome to the Site! We're glad to have ya around


    A live pinky might not be a bad idea. I seriously doubt that a pinky could do any harm to your snake, and the motion plus the warmth of the pinky might stimulate his feeding response. Have you tried really getting the f/t one hot? Sometimes a little overheating is a good thing. Please keep us posted on how it goes.

    How/where are you trying to feed it? You could try feeding it in a seperate, small container so the snake has nothing to concentrate on but the pinky over night. Like a plastic butter/margerine container, or something of that size, with air holes. Put in inside the regular tank in case it escapes. This is supposed to work about 50% of the time. It doesn't work on my corn snake though, so you never know.

    If it's been three weeks, I would say go ahead and try the live pinky, as led said. It couldn't hurt your snake.
