Hey everyone. I have a 3" and 4" RBP in my tank. I had fed them a few frozen pinkie mice before with no problems, but then took it a step up. I fed them a live baby mouse (about three times the size of pinkies). The guy at the pet store said not to, because it would make a huge mess and they wouldn't finish it all and I shouldn't do it unless i have like at least 10 p's. But I had faith in their hunger and dropped him in. Wow is all i can say. I was horrified. They finished him, every last bite, as gruesome as it was. There wasn't a single thing left to clean, they even ate the skull. But i'm not sure how often I will do it, because I know its not good for them to get that much fat, but also, it was really sick.

congrads..you can feed probably every other week or so if you like..its a good source of protein..fresh meat can't go wrong with that.when i first feed a mouse to my fish it was really gruesome..kinda felt sorry for the little felow..but that was all of five minutes long..then i toss in the other one...

That is great!
Yea, next time you have to film it. I'm going to feed a mouse to my p's here in a few weeks. Yes yes. I will try to borrow a camera to film it.

Glad to hear that it worked out!
