    Re: ribbon snake not eating

    I do that too. I also hand feed some. As long as the bedding is safe-ish and not a ingestion concern, that's fine. It's always fun to watch 'em go fishing. I love it!

    Re: ribbon snake not eating

    That works. It's really hard to clean though (you should clean every month). but it allows live plants. I used aspen, but now I use bark/coconut mix and stuff like that. But if you're feeding in cage (i am but my snake never swallows any and logs and stuff are his "floor", so he never reaches the bottom with it.) it's good to have eco earth, potting soil, coconut (goes right throuh 'em) or reptile carpet (i do that with my baby).

    Re: ribbon snake not eating

    Ya know I don;t think you have to get him on mice. If you want I think fish is fine for ribbons. Like i said they're pretty exclusive fish eaters....

    He's a anerythristic red-sided. Here's my thread.

    It;s hard to do with ribbons. Don't stress it, it may never happen.

    He's only a couple weeks old.

    Goldfish and Rosies are a no-no.
