I kept all of my neos in shoebox size containers with clothes hanger perches until they were very established. As a general rule, I try to keep perches that are pretty close to the diameter of the snake. I've found that my gtps were a little more picky about the temps of their feeders than my garbage disposal bloods. I never tried the hair dryer trick, but it seems like a good idea. I hope you get him feeding soon. Usually if I could get mine to wrap it they would eat..just getting them to wrap was usually the battle for me.


    That's gorgeous!!

Said his biak is the most pita feeder of all his GTPs. And Pat doesnt go crazy for food. He will inspect it for about a min while i'm jiggling it in front of him and stuff. Once he figures out it's food, he just latches onto the mouse's head and pulls back and hangs down and wraps it. Luckily, once Pat grabs food, he doesnt let go, thank god.


    I was told that hes manokwori, but at this point I don't believe any thing they told me.


    But now on a positive note he' eating two meals on his own
    Now also he seems to be much more feisty while before he would almost never strike. Nowadays he will strike it almost anything that enters his cage whether it's a mouse or my hand. luckily as a baby their teeth are not too big.

    Hes doing much better now. tho it took way longer than i would have liked. he now takes food on his own about 95% of the time. The last time i had to assist feed him was 12/30/2018. weight wise he still is not were id like, but he is putting on the weight and looks much better now. just took along time and a ton of patience.

    12x12 is kind big. I used plastic coat hangers cut up for my baby GTP perches..now I have these pre made ones that just go in a tub. I love them. I have mine in a rack and she's doing phenomenally.
