In Reply to: Hope the Geckos are small, it\'s a neonate.... posted by Brendan on July 29, 2002 at 16:50:06:
...atcually, it's kinda cool, really. It eats the tail first, and a day later eats the whole gecko. It can handle two a week. These are TINY neos, not too muck bigger than those geckos. LOL.
Pretty cool. It really makes sense. Wild neonates don't have a lot of choices, and if they had to wait around for a young gecko before it could eat something the right size, they would easily starve. So it makes sense that such little snakes would be primarily dependand on a VERY available prey item-- adult banded geckos. It's a perfect match.
In fact, it is likely yealing neonates graduate to uta, which are very numerous and common around the base of creosote, under which neonate sidewinders reside as well. Marty and I found that little youngster early this year, chowing on an uta at the base of a creosote... Great animals.
