I'm a new BP owner and I'm having issues getting my snake to eat. The first time, he took the mouse, but then my dumbbell husband moved and scared him. He dropped the mouse and it was over. It was still there the next morning. Tonight, he took the mouse and even started eating it, but then spit it out after halfway eating it. Also, I'm at a loss as to how to feed him without risking scaring him. He's in a screen top aqua, so putting the screen back in place scares him, but I can't leave it off overnight. It seems like he's fine until I try to leave the room, enter the room, turn off a light (the one that allows me to determine where the snakes head is, but barely gices off light), or put the lid back in place, it scares him. He's thin and I am really tired of wasting mice. We're already at 3 he wasted. And now I'm exhausted because I sat up waiting for him to eat for over 2 hours for him to throw it up.
