:Yes Andy, I've heard the rumor that they can convert. Unfortunately I bought a trio from the classifieds here from a breeder who claimed they were on "scented pinkies". That is the only reason why I bought them because I live in southern california where we have no toads. They were all just starving to death regardless of the scenting techniques I've used (I've used them all". So I had to force feed them and the weakest one died yesterday. My western hog is growing like a weed. I figure if they are all the same size one can't eat the other. Sound right?

First off, you mentioned that they're all housed together and that they're not eating? Separate them. Doing that will help them adjust, lessen the stress, and possibly even start eating again.
Second, yes, snakes the same size can and will eat each other. If one tries to eat the other, typically both of the snakes die. Pop over to the corn forum and ask Clint Boyer to post that motley pic of his, to see what I mean. That time, I believe the hungry one did survive.
