Hey BB, if you are having a problem feeding your female, try putting her in a dark box during feeding... Gaboons can be shy feeders, although its rare, it still happens once in a while...


She never had a problem when she was younger, which is strange. I just switch the light off and she seems to be happy with that. She will bite the food, hold on for a little while and then let go. That's when she decides not to eat it and I have to switch off the lights, but sometimes she eats without a problem. Typical woman... can't make up her mind!!

BB,
I have had a couple of gaboons that would eat infront of me one feeding and not feed in front of me the next 2 feedings... I guess it all depends on the individual snake...

Try the box technique.. I worked for me 99% of the time...
