In Reply to: Taipan feeding question posted by CinnamonSpider on March 08, 2003 at 08:48:41:

:"The new born and sub adults are fed on a rotation system and depending on time and food available may be fed up to three times per week."

:I have just read this on a paper about breeding Taipans. This may be a really stupid question but what does it mean by a rotation system...is this just rotating types of prey?

Obviously I completely missed a whole paragraph explaining this;

"Each clutch of young is housed in a series of three cages as described in ‘Materials and Methods’. The middle cage is only used for feeding and the snakes are offered food individually. As one snake is moved from one cage, is fed in the middle cage and is then moved onto the other end cage. This is repeated until all the young have been fed and the next feed is a transfer back to the other end. Stubborn feeders can be left in the feed section overnight."

Sorry, just ignore me! :)
