    Excellent !!

    That's a very promising start ... maybe try heating the head with a hairdryer next time .. offer in dim light . There's a better chance of him getting the right end

    Yeah I thawed in a ziplock pulled em out hit em with the hair dryer and fed. I thought the same thing about focusing more heat on just the head.

    They're all different but if yours is striking in normal light and in the open then that's promising..mine only strike from within their hides and in dim light ..

    Yeah so far I haven't had any issues with feeding during the day all my snakes have had strong feeding response. Most of the time as soon as I bring a rodent in the room no matter what time they are popping out of their hides and alert. It's not normally that bright in my snake room but I opened up the curtain to get some good lighting for some pics.

    Thanks! Yeah I fed my older noodle first and he struck it good wrapped it up then unwrapped and left it came up to the glass like WTF!?!? what is this and I lost hope lol. Then about a minute or two of realizing that I wasn't dropping another in he went over and started chowing down. My little guy was a champ struck wrapped up and started chowing down.
