:I have a young Western Hognose. About 6-inches long. Have had him now about three weeks, and he has yet to eat for me. I am offering f/t pinkies and he refuses them. Do I switch to live pinkies? Help.

well you can try scenting the pinky with trout that has worked for me, for some reason some hoggies like fish :) also you can try the pinky sized snake steak sausages they seem to work on fussy eaters too, you could also try opening the jaws of the snake and inserting the pinky that usually gets them in feeding mood once they have had the first one.
