    Re: Feeding new blood

    Don't worry if your blood occasionally refuses a meal. In fact, the way bloods are fed in captivity is vastly different from the way they feed in the wild. You can just tell by looking at an adult's body size and shape that this species doesn't "chase down' their prey. They are highly ambush predators, just waiting for something to come their way, instead of actively seeking out their food. Some adults have been known to only feed once or twice a year. Juveniles do need more often feedings, but don't need a full belly all the time, and in fact it is detrimental to their health to do so. Overfeeding a juvenile can result in an obese snake, heart problems, and a shortened lifespan. Yours seems to be doing quite well and is a good size. He's a great looking blood and actually appears to be the spitting image of mine.

    Malakai is eating like a champ and has gained 500g and some length. He has a fantastic disposition. He has not been aggressive to anyone at any time. My 8 year old loves holding him. I will take some quality photos after next shed.

    I love Bloods! Always have fed F/T, or some had just been euthanized, never live. But they are great captives, in my experience, once acclimated. Thanks for sharing the pic, beautiful young snake!
