Finally after nearly three months, my GTP has decided to eat! I tried him on the usual defrost rat fluff, he struck but wouldn't hold it, then the cat bought in a baby bird and promptly killed it in the kitchen................"waste not, want not" I thought, so, whilst it was still warm the snake got offered it. As soon as i opened the viv and held the bird in there it was onto it. It struck and constricted and scoffed the lot down. So now it'll be a couple of day old chicks and rub them all over Mr rat fluff and that should do the trick..............
If you're squeamish, look away....

Are you going to be trying the snake on maybe frozen chicks now and see how it does? Or have you already and i've missed something?
Great looking snake, one of the more photogenic species.

Day old chicks have virtually no nutritional value for snakes. I plan to "disguise" a rat pup by putting chick fluff on its head and rub the rat all over with the chick to transfer the scent, then gradually reduce the amount of chick scent over several feeds

No more or less than any other species in general and it depends what snakes you're talking about.

absolutley dog tame, slightly head shy tho'. Temperament wise, you're better going for a Sorong or Aru type. Biak, Jayapura and Manokwari are a bit "snappier"
