Jane, have you tried gold fish? Put the fish in a seprate bowl of water, place it in the tank and watch him fish!

Snakes are evil creatures and you should teach your child that.

Cats are a little less evil than snakes nut they are also very evil

hi im a lover of snakes to. a sake will start off eating young dead mice starting from they are young as the snakes get older they will eat less often but bigger mice. they live aquariums that are see through, but please make sure the lid is sealed firmly as snakes can wriggle there way through small gaps. your son will enjoy looking after a snake as they are interesting and quiet easy to care for if you ask me snakes are a perfect pet. nicole aged 13

Name: luke | Date: Sep 21st, 2006 8:12 PM
what age should the snake b before i try n handle it 

Name: molly | Date: Sep 24th, 2006 8:19 AM
hey im molly i own a snake im 14 and my mums the same. If he wants one id say give him one. Make his own mistakes i mean they are great you know what i mean. They need a good cabinet that has no holes in the side. They eat dead mice lil pink ones brought frozen then defrozed in a lil container with warmwater until soft. Then they livein the cabinet. They dont make a mess. They only poop oncea week. It would be better to get him a childrens python they are the best and only 1.6metres. They dont bite and are great with kids. xxKISSESxx wirte to me if any other questions [email protected]

i am a first time snake keeper (corn snake) .It is 3 months old and for the last week and a half he wont eat and seems scared of the pinkies that are offered. Can anyone offer any advise on what to do 

Name: rwewayne | Date: Sep 25th, 2006 7:11 PM
you forgot to wash your hands after touching the mice. remember now a snakes smell. 

Name: FroG | Date: Sep 27th, 2006 8:14 AM
Jay, here's a few tips you can try. As your snake is so young, it will be scared of the pinkies at times, if the snake doesn't want to eat after about 5-10 mins of having the mouse in the cage, TAKE THE MOUSE OUT!!! Leaving it in will stress the snake out badly, lessening the chances of it eating even more! Aswell, only put 1 pinkie in at a time!! Give the snake chance to settle (about 1-2 hours) before trying again.
If this doesnt work, try dangle the mouse infront of the snake, this will atract its attention more but don't make sudden movements! Be ready for a quick release if the snake takes the prey.
If you start getting desperate, try euthanizing the pinkies before feeding. The most humane way to do this is to use CO2 gas (carbon dioxide), this can be readily obtained from hardware stores that supply welding supplies! Get a tallish container, put the pinkies inside. Hold the pipe from the CO2 canister in the bottom of the container, half fill container with CO2. !!!!! DON'T inhale the gas, as you too could get KNOCKED OUT!!!!! do this in a garage or a place with no wind as the gas will just blow away. Leave the mice inside for 3-5 mins, Once they are "down", take the container outside to get rid of the gas.
Now take the pinkie and run quite warm water over it, the increased temperature will strengthen the odour given off by the mouse, thus attracting even the most stubborn of snakes attention! Once this is done, try dangle the pinkie infront of the snake again, except using braai (barbi Q) tongs this time, be patient!

If all of this doesn't help, seek out a snake expert or reptile vet in your area because force feeding will be your next option!!

A ball python or a sand boa are the two easiest snakes to take care of the ball python gets about 4 to 6 feet where as a sand boa gets about 2 to 4 feet they both eat live mice the sand boa can live in a 20 gallon tank where as a ball python will need a 30 gallon tank.

i think you should ask the person whom ever gave you the snake and if that doesnt work i think you said tell him about snakes and how dangous it can be if its a poisen snake
