:I cannot get my black racers to eat. How do you guys get them to eat mice? I have tried putting the in a confined area but that doesn't work, i've tried to feed them in their cage they living in ,but that won't work. I can get one to eat lizards but that is it. I have to force feed them superworms, wax worms ,crickets, parts of a pinkie. nothing works though. Any help is appreciated.
how big are they?Hatchlings? If so feeder anoles are available on the feeder pages.Try scenting pinks with urine or feces from the anoles (for your lizard eater) or try Zoo Meds lizard maker ,got a red whipsnake on pinks that way.Also try small frogs or toads on your problem feeder.Hope this helps
