In Reply to: Was wondering if its hard to get RETICS on rabbits? posted by Damon on April 29, 2003 at 10:54:16:

Unless you have problems finding live rabbits and killing them yourself or if you have trouble finding adequately sized rabbits. I've switched two Burms, five retics, two boas, and a ball python to rabbits - the only modification done was scenting with the older prey originally. Only one retic, a super female gave me any grief but she switched too. Giants that are finicky in general will be finicky with rabbits as well. I think people who have a good supplier of freshly frozen rabbits or who pre-kill themselves run less of a chance of encountering resistance. That said their is a procedure for switching that should be adhered to.

:Hey guys I was just wondering if it was to get RETICS that are large enough onto thawed rabbits..

:I remember when I had my burmese pythons a few years back I had one that NEVER EVER would take a rabbit, but would eat a BUCKET of thawed rats one after another during a feeding..

:Thanx.
