In Reply to: Hondo males not eating? posted by blueharlequin on April 16, 2003 at 08:33:24:


Happens every year..Hondos, Sins, Campbelli...none of them want to eat. Saves me a lot of money on food, though. My graybands never stop eating, even when they are shedding. My Dry's keep eating through the breeding season, too...but they are veritable garbage disposals anyway.


:Hey folks. It would seem that my two males have lost interest in food. I've read that that may happen during breeding, as they kind of get interested in only one thing. The odd thing is, that the guys investigate the mice (f/t) when they're first put in the cage.. and then just sort of nose them around a bit. I tend to place the mice for one of them on top of his hide box, and always have, and now as soon as I put 'em in, he goes and sniffs the thing for a while and then nudges the mouse off onto the ground. Every time.
:Anyway, is this consistant with breeding season behavior?
