    If you do try the f/t silversides, make sure to try ones that the heads haven't broken off of. This sounds bizarre, but I have two snakes that absolutely will not touch a feeder (mouse or fish) if...

    To add onto what Albert said, we have had members in the past who bought safe species of fish from the grocery store to feed and ended up with dead snakes due to a preservative they didn't know was...

    Interesting. I know the problem with silkworms and thiaminase has come up on some frog forums I'm on. I think the majority of the real worries with thiaminase come from the feeding of live rosy...

    How long did you leave them in together? They're usually a bit nervous about a new snake at first, but that calms down pretty quickly in my experience. After about a ten minute freakout involving...

    Size-wise, I try to make them close enough in size that they would be a pretty even match if a food-fight broke out (of course, this all goes out the window if you put a male and female together to...

    I tried misting Houdini's enclosure once... It was probably the biggest snake panic attack I've ever witnessed. We just rely on the water evaporating from their dishes to keep the humidity at an...

    Just a suggestion... Don't contact a wildlife official about the babies. I think (you might want to look it up to be sure) that it's illegal to own any native reptile species in GA. Since easterns...

    Sounds like my snakes will be getting a lot of chicken heart and liver.

    Would livers or gizzards be okay to feed as well? I'm guessing whatever is good to feed from a turkey would also be okay from a chicken :) Unfortunately I'm thinking whatever I get won't be...

    I really miss Steve Irwin. He was the reason I first became interested in reptiles way back in the day. Now it's difficult to even catch a re-run of his old show. I just miss the way you could...

    Glad he's eating them. Hopefully he'll put on enough weight that you can treat him for parasites then get him to take better food.

    I normally wouldn't recommend this because of thiaminase concerns, but if you have a local baitshop that sells silver-colored minnows (less likely to have thiaminase than rosie-reds at any rate) you...
