I finally got my mangroves to eat. I purchased them from LLL reptile in relatively good condition. A bit dehydrated, emaciated and had some ticks, but nothing serious. I tried frogs. No response. Mice scented with frogs. No response. Anoles. No response. Mice scented with anoles. No response. Mice scented with chicken feathers. No response. Regular mice, no scenting whatsoever: took it first try. Soemtimes you gotta go with the basics. LLL still hasnt had any luck on getting them to eat. They're gaining weight pretty well now, and are very well hydrated as well. Hope this info helps someone out.
