:Salutations!
:I've never had a hatchling that didn't eat, I know they do. However I've never purchased some like that until now. There annoying me. I tried live, tried frozen/thawed, and scented (maybe they weren't scented enough?). Should I force feed them for a few weeks before brumatation in Nov. for 10 weeks? I hope I don't break them there tinnie, isn't there something else I'm not doing. Out of 3 none feeding hatchlings one fed on both live and frozen/thawed, I've no problem with her, the other two won't touch food. Any more suggestions before I try to pry there tinnie mouths open and let them sit for the winter time will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have been keeping Burmese and Bismark Ringed Pythons for some time, so I have experience with both large and small snakes. However, I am going nuts with a TINY hatchling alterna I got as an unfed animal at a local show. My girlfriend picked him out as her first herp, so I really want him to make it. I have bags and bags of frozen peach fuzzies for my Rings, he is not interested. I have bought numerous newborn, live pinks, not interested. I even considered spending too much money on a baby blue garter hatchling at a pet store. How do I scent the pinky? Will buying an anole and rubbing it on the oink suffice? Please help. - Brian
