An update - I left a pink mouse in for each of the atropos and they werent interested. Ended up teasing them with the pink and the male ate. Female not yet.

Ok finally the female took a mouse this morning.

The teasefeeding worked very well.

hi rob. i know this is quite and old post so i hope this gets to you. i really dig your baby atropos and i have a question or two for you.

were they eating when you got them ? if so what were they eating ? if they werent eating ( pinkies ) what did you get them started on ? i have a whipper snapper of my own that i have had for a short while ( 2 weeks ) and it is not interested in taking pinkies. in my experience these normally take pinks quite easily ( i have had several over the years ) but this one doesnt seem keen. any ideas of what would be the best to try next would be appreciated.


thanks

jeez rob. ta for the unselfish advice. i am not nearly pc literate enough to post a pic or seven as yet but i am working on this slowly but surely. as soon as i become able i will send some for sure.

my little junior is plain red with no markings and pink eyes. ( only joking bout the pink eyes ). i am not sure of the locality as yet but investigations ar underway and i will let you know when i do.


ta again

Not a problem. Let us know how it goes.
If he is indeed red then he is no doubt from Mpumalanga. Theyre usually bulletproof so Im sure he will be feeding in no time.

No updated pics as they are no longer with me :( They are with a good friend though which is the next best thing I guess.
