In Reply to: Help! Need Info on Feeder Mice Sizes.... posted by Sonya on April 29, 2003 at 08:14:52:
::Need info on feeder mice sizes --- I have a yearling Dumeril Boa...need to know what a Hopper sized mice is like...I gave him what appears to be an adult -- way toooo big for him!!! What is a Hopper and What is a Fuzzy? And how do I judge sizes of live feeder mice for my Dumeril Boa???
:If you have a scale weigh them. I consider a fuzzy anything with fuzz or fur but eyes still shut. Once the eyes open they are what most call crawlers/hoppers. Feeder companies call anything 10-15gramms a small mouse and 15 to 20 a medium and over 20 a large. Don't know the size of your Dum but I always err on the side of too small. No harm no foul that way.
** Does anyone know where to find Live Mice? Is there mail-order or can you only buy live mice locally in Pet stores? I can not seem to find pet stores in my area that sell Live Hoppers
