Sorry to trouble u, but i would like to know if there is any difference in feeding tree boas with mice and hamsters? I have a pair of GTP hatchlings so i hope u can help..they are not feeding as they are wild caught..ive tried to seek help in the GTP forum but apparently, pple there arent too helpful...will greatly appreciate any method suggested to get them to feed again..thanx


:Hi, some of you might know me from the boa forum, the rest of you likey don't. I used to have a trio of ATB's but sold them to make room (and appease the wife). I miss those evil beasties and plan to acquire more soon, In the meantime I lurk here a bit. Anyway to the point...

:I acquired a WC adult male Guyanan B.c.c. who had not eaten on his own in captivity. All of his three previous owners had given up on him and passed him off cheap. After a week in my posession he started eating Dwarf hamsters. Mind you it cost a small fortune to feed a 6' boa on Dwarf hamsters, regardless of how good a deal you could get. But they do work.

:::I've tried rats,mice, and gerbils with no success.

::Have you tried Russian Dwarf Hamsters? They work great on Amazons and Emeralds. A lot of colubrid breeders (like myself) use dwarf pinks and fuzzies for stubborn hatchlings too.

::BTW, compare prices at all your local pet shops, they'll range from $10 or more to as little as 2 for $5
