:I finally got my mangroves to eat. I purchased them in relatively good condition. A bit dehydrated, emaciated and had some ticks, but nothing serious. I tried frogs. No response. Mice scented with frogs. No response. Anoles. No response. Mice scented with anoles. No response. Mice scented with chicken feathers. No response. Regular mice, no scenting whatsoever: took it first try. Soemtimes you gotta go with the basics.

We have found that they will take appropriately sized pre-killed rats almost every time. They must be left alone to settle in and have 100% hide during the day but within a week or three they all eat.

Why doesn't every dealer remove ticks before shipping? We do. It is easy. Hobbyists should all NEVER see a tick or a mite. It is too simpple to do. Perhaps if your vendor removed the ticks their snakes would settle in and start eating.
