Ok now you have me stumpped cuz for one I have no idea what a food box is. I guess if you feed your snake frozen would the food box be the freezer? If the food box is the freezer why are you putting a clod blooded animal in the freezer. I guess your freezer needs a new door seal so it doesnt have lage enough gaps for the snake to get out! lololol

Well since hawn weighs in at just over 50 lbs I just feed her in her regulat habitat. Shes way too big to be moving back and forth. So you kind of threw me off when you mentioned a feed box.

Lol XD I can understand that. I feed all my other snakes in their cages too, just because I'm too lazy to move them all and it takes way too long to feed them in their boxes, but she was sharing a cage with Daiquiri and I didn't want them to latch onto the same rat ... Which I didn't have to worry about anyways seeing as neither of them ate!

I feed all our snakes (55) in their enclosures too! It's just too much work to move them around. Luckily 1/3 of ours are cooling!!

This may shock some people, but I now feed my snakes together. Now that I have a huge enclosure, I asked the local snake guru about how I should separate them whenever it's feeding time. He told me that he never bothers to separate his snakes in large enclosures, he just waits until the snakes are in two different locations of the viv and he throws them a rat each and keeps an eye on them. It does work, I haven't had any dramas yet

P.S. Good luck with finding Moonshine Snuffles.

I have had babies fight over mice and rip them apart then go after each other... I don't chance it...with so many snakes my attention is always somewhere else.

The cage Moonshine and Daiquiri were in was extremely small. I wasn't gonna chance anything happening ... I'd prefer a lost snake to a dead/eaten one D:
