Kids, do not try this at home!
My BCI female, Jasmine, is a few months old. She is taking a fuzzy rat every week, and is growing like a weed! I noticed that she likes to grab her prey while she hangs from a tree branch, and eat it in midair, so I decided to try something. While she was coiled around my fingers, I lowered her so she could see/smell the fuzzy rat. She struck, constricted, and ate it all while I was holding her. It was a really neat experience! I got to see her eat close up. It was cool to know that she is comfortable enough with me to eat "out of my hand" so to speak.
I certainly wouldn't recommend that others try this, as there was one point I thought she was going to continue with my finger after the fuzzy, but it was an experience! Probably won't do it again, though!
Sounds like the beginning of the Stupid Feeding Errors I have read about!
