Hey guys. Well, all of my other 3 Black masked racers are doing awesome now. The biggest one (Max) is actually in shed too. I have 2 which are picky. So far, they've only taken a live anole each. I just dropped the lizard in there and they went for it. No probs.
Problem is, I can't afford to feed em Anoles cos they're not easily available up here in BC. The thing which worries me is one of them is pretty young (2ft) and has a lil bit of tented skin. I was wondering what other variety of prey should I try to get them to eat voluntarily. I tried a feeder goldfish. No results. I figured crickets would be too small. Any info at all will be appreciated. Else, I just go with opening their jaws and popping something in there. They actuallly swallow by themselves.
Thanks in advance guys.

Vanan
