    Feeding mice type question

    It’s a part of their biology like if they want to I wouldn’t keep waking them up. Delaying it can also delay sexual maturity. But if they never go down I don’t see a problem with it either. It’s like a big reset for their system. Like a big nap their body needs to fully function.

    Feeding mice type question

    Sevys been down in her winter bin for three months I keep her in the 50s in a large Christmas tree tote in about 12 inches of reptibark and straw with a water bowl on one side. She’s 75% blue but I guess the 25% bw takes over since blues don’t normally brumate naturally. She goes down and...

    General color question

    You’d be surprised what they can actually swallow any mouse roughly the size of his head is fine I’d offer whole pray sooner than later. As for color blues heads start off brown and slowly turn white/black

    BOGA might be in trouble

    Hey James am I correct in remembering that Boga is a blue hybrid? If true remember blues don’t normally brumate when in their natural environment. Being a hybrid if he is means he has two separate localities fighting for instinctual supremacy lol. My hybrid blue75% 25%bw did not brumate the...
