In Reply to: feeding prekilled to wild caught racer posted by shadow on April 27, 2001 at 10:06:26:
: Does anyone out there have any suggestions about getting a racer moved over to prekilled or much to the dismay of the wife,do i need to start it off with live,since that is what the snake is acustomed to?Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Ive always worked with captive-bred,and i was skiddish about getting wild-caught and if he doesnt improve i want to get back out,before he becomes to acclimated to captivity.Thanks in advance!
My boyfriend, Vanan, recieved a shipment of WC racers from Glades, as I'm sure the 'regulars' know and on his second feeding, he was able to bring his black masked racers over to frozen/thawed mice on tongs. His first feeding was live however, and he is able to feed them out of their tupperwares. There were two racers however, that have only eaten anoles thus far.
He advises keeping the racer's container covered while feeding. Leave a smaller than appropriate sized food item. Just leave the snake alone. Check back on it later.
