  • feeding Cookie Dough *DUW*

    I fed Cookie Dough for the first time since Ive had her and also fed My female BP who went on another one of her "picky" stages and decided to only eat black or dark grey rats again. Does anybody else have any animals that are picky on color?

    Might just be me but that rat looks rather large for that BP! Nice collection!

      I think its just the way the rat is laying. She got it down without a problem and its her usual sized prey item.

        Ball pythons can be picky color-wise i had one that would only eat dark ones too. Just par for that course!

          Shes not always picky but when she refuses to eat 3-4 times then I will offer black or dark grey and shes back on track. Last time I had to feed her 2-3 times like that then she would accept any color again.

            Yes I've had my Boas be picky about color, they won't eat black, or multi colored

            My guess is your BP ate that color for same reason Boas won't eat it

            A little higher fat content I believe

            I think they can smell it, that's my guess

              Different colors have different levels of fat?

                    bro I am literally hurting right now from watching that Gabriel Iglesias video... do rodents have different levels of fat according to their coloration? I only feed white rats/mice to my snakes about 95% of the time.

                    Nice looking snakes my bro thanks for sharing those pics with us

                        My VERY first snake was a BP i name Konvict..that guy would eat WHATEVER I offered...white, black, grey, brown, multi-colored...heck probably even a purple or green rat! lol He wasnt picky at all.

                        None of my others have any problems with colors...yet...except her but she will 99% of the time take a black rat when nothing else works for her.

                              That's a BP for you....picky, picky, picky. My buddy's seems to do that on a regular basis. Nice snakes tho man.

                              Oh and I heard from someone that one reason a snake can be picky about color is that it has been bitten by that particular colored rat from a live feeding. Is this true??
