This is my first feeding of a live mouse and I hope it's my last.
But I suspect it won't be... sigh...

Yes, I am squeamish. Oh well.

:I agree that Hognoses are very sensitive to the movements of their prey, and will easily get turned off to feeding. However, the deli cup method has been tried and it has been proven. It works even with a live pinkie simply because eventually the hognose will get used to it and eventually look at it in the way it is supposed to, as food. I say go for it.
