So we fed Monty (15' burm who refused his last 3 meals) tonight and he ate! I took him out yesterday to clean up some urates and realized I hadn't checked his temps in a while and his basking spot was 85 degrees F. Okay for winter, but under what he needs to digest properly. So we bumped his basking spot up to 95*F, and made sure to check it before feeding tonight. We used the awesome new tongs I got to put the food in his enclosure. He didn't even realize it was in there until it was dangled in front of his face. Not to anthropomorphize but he was like, "wha wha whaaaat?!" and struck, and nailed it. He even realized he was eating it feet first and stopped then used his face to turn it around. So I guess he's a little smarter than I thought previously. I fed him a large rat first and we're about to feed a guinea pig. I know, you're thinking "a large rat?! that's too small" and you're right, but I'm using the rats to scent the pigs because he's only ever been fed rats and rabbits. I also found out from owner 02 (I'm owner 03) that owner 01 used to feed him TWO 20lb rabbits a month. I can't imagine. Also, the tongs I got for Christmas are Gentle Giant Super Tongs from Midwest Tongs and they have solved almost every issue I had with handling and feeding. They are the best! So... let's see if he eats the pig. He's very very obviously in "feeding mode" so I think he will.
