    10 for 10

    I fed all but one of my critters this weekend and every one of 'em ate. All of them usually eat pretty consistently anyway but my coastal carpet hadn't eaten since December and was due to shed any day. When I started blow drying rats in the room his head popped out with the undeniable look of hunger. I had a medium rat designated for my Olive but decided to give the coastal a go instead and he smashed it with vigor. He also shed the following day. WINNING! I love it when he breaks his winter fast. Ironically he's done so during the 2nd week of April the last 2 years.

    I know how you feel...even though I don't have BPs or many snakes that go off feed for winter, I do have ONE...my TX longnose snake (a pretty tricolor desert snake).

    He was off feed for 5 mos. ...but it was normal for him, & he recently started eating again. I don't brumate him so he does lose a little weight (& he doesn't have
    much to lose, being a slender fellow) but since he does this every year...I just go with the flow & wait for him to quit fooling around* & eat. *He was very restless & while
    I knew he was hungry, he was in apparent "denial" for several weeks, but now & for the rest of the year (until next November) he'll be making a pig of himself again...

    Let's hear it for the end of fasting!
