In Reply to: A pic of my ATB eating a big bird..... posted by boaboy13 on February 15, 2003 at 09:49:01:
I saw your post and wanted to reply. I certainly do not want you to feel that this is an attack. I agree with some of the advice given, but not necessary how it was given. In the future, I would resist the urge to feed your ATB wild birds. Wild birds can be a vector for disease which can jump across the species gap and infect your snake. As far as wild feeding habits go, studies have shown that the primary diet of neonates are small lizards, etc and as they mature, they feed primary on the arboreal rice rat and the occasional unwary bird. They are opportunistic and readily feed on whatever is available. However, that is in the "wild" where they are also ridden with parasites and other things. In captivity, your best bet is to stick with cb mice or rats.
