    (Dekay's) What if he won't eat worms?

    Hi! So I've been catching slugs for my Dekay's snake and he loves them. I've tried worms from the yard, and he is NOT interested. Snails, too, (big and small) are untouched. I am getting worried going into Fall/Winter that I won't be able to find enough slugs. Any other suggestions on what else he may like? Will he eat a worm if he gets hungry enough? I was going to try to find enough to keep and breed for winter but I've only been able to find enough for him to eat. Any help would be appreciated!

    Try scenting a worm with slug. You can try to rub the slug mucus on the worm or dice a slug up with a very small amount of water. Then dip the head of the worm in it. Once he's grabbed it he won't let it go.
