:What are the cage temps and humdity levels?

:Where are you feeding it? In the cage, in a deli cup, in a bag?

:Are you trying to feed it live or prekilled?

:How long have you had it? How long has it been since it ate last?

:Other than all of that information that would be extremely helpful... Try lizard scenting, or try an anole.

::I just got a hatchling gray banded king and have been unable to get it to eat.I have had boas and corns in the past but this is my first king.I offered a 2 day old pinkie with no response.I read on another site to wash it and dry it .So I tried that.Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

:Thanks for responding .The temp is 75 Im not sure on the humidity I didnt know this was a factor.I have been trying to feed in the cage which is fairly small I thouhgt this would help to get him to eat.I have tried live pinky and a dead pinky that has been brained (washed and unwashed).I have had him for a week.My kids bought him for me and the seller through in this hatchling because he couldnt get him to eat.I dont know when he ate last or if he ever has.He is very small about 6inches or so.If a try a anole do I feed him live .Do I need to do anything to the anole before I feed him.Again thanks for the help!!!!!
