That's pretty funny!!! It really figures though! I deal mostly with turtles/torts, and have had great success with some of the most difficult species, but now that I also have 8 snakes I find myself back on the learning curve.
I've actually been leaving them overnight to eat, but still only win with one of them, so it looks like a little baby food till she comes around. She's too small to play games with for too long, but I'll consult with my vet and see what he thinks too.
:I waited 6 weeks for my non-eating babies, by which time the babies in question had started losing considerable weight. One alternative that does work very well for me is leaving them alone in a deli cup overnight with a couple pinks. But sometimes force feeding does have to be resorted to if you want to save the snake's life, IMO.
:P.S.- Murphy's law, the most expensive morphs are always the worst eaters
