    premade meals

    Nothing but I’d move to small mice as soon as she’s ready. they can handle more than you think my adult female takes down large rats without issue. The only issue with pinks is milk bellies and lack of any real calcium or fat. Their small bones don’t offer much. Mine has been fed whole meals...

    If he refuses a thawed mouse then it’s either a temp issue or brumation. My female sleeps for months during brumation in a low 50s high 40s garage all winter

    They can handle small pinks days after hatching basically go bye the width of their jaw and that’s about how big they can handle.

    Picky eater, and skidish

    He’s pretty close to his adult color now. He may get a little more red you can’t tell with hybrids as they may take more after one of the parents. My 75% blue 25% b/w looks nearly full blue outside of her back pattern. When crossing two localities you never know. Their habits may reflect one or...

    Picky eater, and skidish

    He looks healthy you don’t want a fat baby. Have you tried taking some of the fruits out of the meat mash they aren’t huge fruit/veggie fans till older and some never are. Also at that age you should be giving him whole food once or twice a week. An appropriately sized mouse or two.

    get him in a warm bath to get the stuck shed off. Check poops for parasites, and run your fingers down his spine something looks off. I’m not trying to sound down here but I’ve seen the animals these breeders/whole sellers bring to local reptile shows and 95% of the time they are wild...
