In Reply to: My first ATB litter... posted by tenfield on October 13, 2002 at 00:54:01:
:My female dropped 10 babies on the fourth, but only three appear to be in shed- and not very deeply. How long before i can expect them to come out of it and start eating? How likely are they to take their first meals before shedding?
:An interesting point worth noting- they were born in a Vision Arboreal cage, and half of them escaped thru the space between sliding glass. I was just as surprised that it happened as i was that i'd never heard of it happening to others...Anyway, looking forward to any and all advice.
: Thanks in advance,
looks like instead of getting a little help with your questions the internet wannabe made a mess. Fortunately the moderators here on Kingsnake are pretty good. I'm posting this because I don't want you to be discouraged in asking for advice on the internet.
You will find with your first litter that EACH one will be different from the next. Some will eat like clockwork whatever you offer for food and others will starve themselves to where you end up force feeding in a worst case scenario. They normally all shed within the first two to three weeks and will normally eat within 48hrs of the shed. They can be very hard to get started on feeding. As they grow, they get easier but from experience the first 6 months are a pain. I have a complete care sheet on baby Amazons at www.thedarkgrove.com if you need some extra info. Keep in mind that what works for some people will not always work for someone else. Also advice given isn't always given from someone who "knows" what they are talking about. You have to weed through any info given, even mine.
Hope this helps, I and other Tree boa keepers also "hang" out at www.corallus.com if you are looking for another good site to go with Kingsnake.com in your bookmarks.
