I've had this baby gray banded king snake for almost 3 weeks, and finally got it to eat....almost. The snake bit on and swallowed it about half way. After about a half hour, it gave up on swallowing the other half and let go of it. He had it had it half way down (head first), but he just couldn't swallow it...this was the smallest f/t pinkie, and it was quite small. Am I supposed to feed b hatchlings something other than pinkie mice first?
