All I can do, is tell you what worked for me. I have a 6 mo.
old male red phase "Dusty" Hoggie. It took a while to figure
out what worked. Now, I put him in a vented Tupper Ware rectangular container to eat. I put a pinkie in a baggie, and
heat it up in a cup of hot water for about 10 minutes.
Then run it under HOT tap water for a few seconds, and drop it
in wet, with the snake, in the container, and put him in a semi-
dark room for about 20 minutes,(kitchen with the lights off)
By the time I clean his cage, the mouse is gone!
As far as shedding, they are slow shedders. Mine has only shed
once since I've had him. DON'T WORRY!!! Just make sure he always
has plenty of fresh water in his bowl, and a few jagged rocks put
together for him to rub against when he gets ready to shed.
Watch for his eyes to turn foggy (blue), and he will go into
hiding for a week or so. Best of luck to you, and let me know
how things work out! Thanks, Doc
