Last year I purchaed about 6-9 adult platyrhinos that would take frozen mice right off the bat as wc animals.
They ended up all dropping dead except for 2 that I managed to save by feeding frozen toads to it after #3 died. I have also heard third hand that Bill Griswold (REPTILES, albino simus!!!!!) got out of Heterodon because all of his animals died. He blamed mice for this.
The animals I had were established wild adults that probably never tasted mice before. This was probably a shock to their systems. However, I do own a lot of cb babies and animals that were collected as yearling and 2 year olds that are doing just fine on a 50/50 or 100% rodent diet. I believe you have to start them early. If I get any wc adults this year, it's gonna be thawed toads for them.
Just to note, all of my nasicus are on thawed rodents. My simus will occassionaly take them, but after the adult platyrhinos fiasco, I switched them to at least 90% Bufo. No room to mess around with simus.
