And a less-shy snake that's pumped up for food will be biting you, either on the way to the tote, or when you try to put them back 'home'- they can stay in "feed mode" for hours to a day or longer. Just don't do that...feed your snake IN his home where he feels safe. Put his needs front & center if you expect him to eat & thrive.

    This is post #11 when you asked about feeding in a separate container immediately after being told not to feed in a separate container

    You're incorrect and again as mentioned before, half listening or just outright misunderstanding the guidance being given. To be blunt, you're becoming increasingly difficult to help and I'm not sure what else to suggest for you if you're not going to read the advice that's being posted.

    Nope, Never never never would tell anyone that. Never happened & never will.

    Talked to Wilbanks and yes the snake was feed in a small home..you recommend to try to copy what they did if possible, so the only way to do that is to feed in a separate container, you are against that, then i misunderstood your post sorry..i too think she should be feed in her new home, more others than not, agree to this also. Sorry for mix up

    Wilbanks almost certainly meant that the animal was kept in a small tub in a rack and that it was fed in that tub where it lived. Read the stickied post I shared top to bottom and thoroughly. We're not telling you anything that Wilbanks hasn't.

    I didn't think Wilbanks feed in separate tub, they feed it in its home which happened to be a tub

    You misunderstood completely. The snake was kept in a small home & fed where it lived, in the same small home. No moving a snake to another place for feeding, ever.

    But that's not saying your current home for the snake is what is best (nor is it what was recommended)- it's probably much larger than the snake was used to, & in part, that's why it's not eating.

    Any suggestions on maintaining humidity? They sell cage humidifiers or regular bedroom humidifiers
