Oh, okay. My (baby) male ate the first time then went without eating for three weeks, then ate twice, and now has been off feed for three more weeks. I think the scenting tips should still apply for adults, though I don't have any experience with adults. Scenting with egg whites got my little guy to feed the second time, so you might try letting the f/t mouse sit in a ziplock bag of eggwhites for a couple hours before putting the snake in a seperate feeding container with the mouse.

:I forgot to mention the the pair are adults and not babies. The male ate a fuzzy rat the first time for me..

::Try a search on this forum, or see my post below made a couple days ago:

:::I just got a pair og Western Hognose and after a few days of letting them get settled I feed them. Well they both ate no problems. But here is mu question, the one that is suppose to be the female continues to eat no problem but the male is not eating now, I have tried sevearal time even offering smaller food but no luck. The female she has a bottomless pit. I had hogs a few years back and never had any problems at all feeding. Any suggestions out there? They are set up with all of the required things. Thanks in advance...
