Tropidophis wrigthi update

Hello all,

Thougth i would give you an update on how the litter of wrigthi are doing.
There first feed where dead lugubris babies, sow when all 6 ate a couple of them dead as there first meal, i was relived :)

After some feedings with dead lugubris, i tried scenting legs, tails from rat pinkies, they ate that as well :)

Some feedings later i thougth i would try and feed them with scented dead pinkie mice ( scented with geckos )
And all 6 have been eathing that for the last, 4 months or sow, and all have shed numorous times and have really grow, especially after taking pinkie mice :)

A few pictures aswell,









Ohhh and in stead of starting a new thread i will throw this picture in here aswell, out of my 0.0.11 litter fordii only 3 are not feeding on either dead or live pinkie mice :)



enjoy,

Kind regards
Peter

Not my kind of snakes, but it is always good to see something beyond the ball python horizon. Do mice work out good for them on the long run?

Hi Peter,

congrats to this success on the long run. :thumbsup:
The first months are the hardest for the West Indian Boas, so I 'll keep my fingers crossed, that all will develop well in the future, too. But you did make the hardest steps allready, so I am not worried at all.

Please give us some updates from time to time. ;)


Best regards, patrick

I can definently agree with you there, there are sow much out there beyond the ball python horizon. Time will tell how they will cope with the diet of mice, for now i am just pleased that they are sow easy to work with.

Hello Patrick,

Thanks, that is true the first months are the hardest, when it comes to my fordii ( and my other species ), then i dont hesitate too long to beging assist feeding them. they are sow small and have nothing to get stared on, in the early months. I will post some updates from time to time.

Again thanks for the cind words, to all.



Kind regards

Peter
