I wouldn't worry too much. Just let them settle in and relax. Keep them in a very low traffic area, preferably in a dimly lit place. I had the very same problem for about a year and a half with a very picky pair of snakes. On a whim I decided to move them upstairs to a spare room, and they have been pounding down f/t rats from tongs ever since. So give them some time, and maybe try some live rat pinks if you can. Usually works for me..

-KRIS

:i have 1.0 naja melanoleuca, 1.1 Naja sputatrix, and 1.1 albino Naja kaouthia.

:None of them are eating. The forest was sold to me eating rats, he ate one a few weeks ago, but it was too big and he regurged it.

:the blacks were sold to me eating chicks, they wont touch them.

:the albinos were sold to me eating pinkies, they wont touch them.

:this has been going for a month, (1wk with the babies).

:i have a heat varient of 75-86, humidity 50-60%. Aspen or mulch substrate. A moss hide box, and large water bowl.

:Any suggestions????

:thanks
