OK, I'll try the techniques you've all given to get her eating, and I'll let you all know what worked as soon as she eats!

Thank you everyone!

:Hi;I just acquired a captive bred baby Spilotes 1 week ago that is a bit on the thin side. I live in the northeast where it has been extremely cold, and despite all efforts made by those of us keeping reptiles in this climate, many reptiles are effected by the cold no matter what we do!

:That said, my question is on feeding, as I realize an acclimation period is necessary, but also am a bit concerned about the underweight condition of this snake. I'm looking for techniques to get my baby started feeding, as my first attempt failed with pinkies today. She did show some interest, but even when isolated with the food refused to eat . Also she has been staying on the bottom of her enclosure while she gets used to her new home, but has been venturing further from her hide on a daily basis. Temps are in the low to mid 80's.

:Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

:Thank you!
