It's enough to think twice before posting. If your posts aren't trollish you're more than welcome to write whatever you want.

There's been a run of trolls, as anyone who's a regular on this list could tell you, and I took you for another, and shot from the hip.

My apologies if I had you wrong. It did read..a little like a 'snipe'.
No excuse for rudeness, sorry.
Phil, thank you for your helpful and informative answer.

It was just a joke. We all make them from time to time.

What I was really interested in my original post is whether I can 'safely' feed a diet of rat pups ... does not cost a rap in the teeth to obtain, I'd be grateful to hear your thoughts on the question.

Thanks for clarifying the question... you might see if you can get your hands on some hairless mice, they look like large rat pups and maybe its that look the snake likes.
I take it he's an adult snake that's too big for rat pups?

She's a three year old snake that my friend's used as a breeder and she's only too big for rat pups if you don't figure she's eating six of them at a time which she was quite overjoyed to do.

I think it's the rat smell she likes, not the hairlessness. I have some pretty hairless mouse fuzzies, and like all mice, she treats them as though they aren't even prey. One sniff if any, and then, goodbye.
I wish I'd asked more questions rather than just accepting his assurance that she was a ravenous eater in my own terms, which with adult colubrids is mice. I'd feel like an idiot calling him in Iraq and having a ratpup discussion. Emotion: smile

Have you considered larger rats? Emotion: smile

Yup, that's why I really need to phone Kevin. Ratpups, you know, are pretty small relative to what's listed as 'small rats', and I'm told I need 'weanlings' but I can't find a listing for anything like that.
I never saw a picture of a weanling, on any of the f/t salessites I've looked at.
I'm sorry if I offended you and the integrity of this list. I will restrain myself from any postings in the future.

Heh. I thought it was pretty funny. Not that you need *my* say-so, but here it is anyway post away! We could use some light- heartedness around here.
