::Have you pissed her off real good yet.

::: I've witnessed limited cadual luring and have tried to entice a strike through contact at key points. She still seems too passive. Thanks for the suggestion though.

:Yes I have pissed her off pretty good she just seems too passive. I can go in the cage and touch her if I'd like (though I'm trying to keep her as stress free as possible) she just seems not to be aggressive enough and it affects feeding. Also, as far as heating the mice up pretty hot, I find that when they are wet the water makes the mouse cool down much faster and drying them seems to lose heat too. I will keep on trying and if she takes you guys will be the first to know. Oh, also, this heat issue brings up another thing I just heard which may or may not be true. Does heating mice in hot water affect the nutritional value of the mice? Your thoughts?
:

I don't know about the nutritional value of heated mice, but try heating them in a plastic baggy in hot water. This will keep the mouse dry and warm a little longer. The problem with getting them too hot, is that they will turn to sludge. They tend to fall apart.
