I just bought a baby male western hognose this Sunday at the New York Reptile Expo.
I put him in a 5.5 gallon aquarium. The temperature is around 80-82.
I wanted to try and feed him tonight. I believe the vendor stated that its been about a week.
He's so very small...How do I feed him?
I know he is capable of eating a small pinky mouse.
1) Should I just place the pinky in the aquarium? I'm concerned that he won't find it. He spends most of his time under the substrate.
2) Or, should I first take him out from the substrate than place the pinky in the aquarium?
3) Finally, should I put them both in a small cup and see if he eats it? I'm afraid by putting him in a cup, he may be to scared to eat.
I'm new to western hognose snake. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
