She didn't eat!! I put her in a feeding box,wiggled a medium rat in front of her(oh why do they need to smell soo strong!) and she just rattled at it.I tried to leave it,but she didn't take any notice of it.Then I put the rat inside her terrarium and then I put Nikita back in;still nothing!How long can I leave the rat inside her cage? And what shall I do?? As Nikita is 7-10 years old and was always fed live and people told me she will be ok in eating f/t I thought ok,I take her in.But now I feel a bit desperate really;what am I going to do if she never eats f/t? Am I a bad snake keeper if I'm not able to feed live? I wouldn't have taken the hobby if I had to feed live!Some European websites say that you need to be able to feed live if you want to be a snake keeper Am I not worthy having that hobby?Please help me,I don't know what to do.Does she need more time to adjust? Thanks for your help!And again,how long can I leave the rat inside the terrarium?
