Alright, regardless of being one of the forum's resident snake wranglers, I have run into a dilema that I find rather distressing. I fed my snakes today, finally, but since the feed place I buy mice from was out of mice. . . again. . . I settled for a rat. After dispatching of the rat and freezing. I butchered it appropriately and divided the carcass into parts according to size of snake to be fed. When I tosses Bogatau (Whom I reclaimed from the thief) a rat leg, she wolfed it down in ten seconds flat, but turned down a second leg. But, and this is where the dilema comes in, when I offered Sparta (My baby Prairie Rattlesnake) a warmed piece of rat meat she didn't take it. She stuck it several times as I made it move around the cage as a live mouse might do but she never tried to eat it. Not even when I dropped it off the skewer and let it sit for a few minutes. Anyone know why this is and how it can be fixed? I really don't want to let Sparta go but I will if I need to. Any advice? Thanks all!
