Talking Bath time experience behavior

Hi All,

Peach hadn't eaten in two weeks (was regular once a week for a long time) so I thought she might need a bath. So I got her feed bin and put some warm water in it. I brought her over and put some water on her before she got in. Then I put her in. At first before I got her whole body in she struggled a little tiny bit, then voila. She loved it. She dunked her head under like she was diving in the pool several times and the last four inches of her tail was wagging like a dogs. She would peep her head over the side then dive back in. I left her in for like 10 minutes and she was a happy girl. I don't know if that is usual, but I'm happy she enjoyed it. She still hasn't eaten and it's been about three weeks. I think she's paused growing and just isn't hungry. She looks great, not skinny. So I'm just trying her every 3-4 days with a mouse. What do you guys do with mice that aren't eaten? Thanks!

Haven't tried to bathe my corn or sand boas. How deep should the water be for my corn and temp?

I actually just tried out some swimming for my boy! He was in there today (he was a little constipated and a nice soak in some lukewarm water cleared that up right away turns out he loves swimming!). As for the mouse that depends on if you feed live or F/T. If it's F/T (which many recommend) and it hasn't been out too long I usually just seal it back up in a bag and re-freeze it. If I've had more than a couple tries with the same mouse I just toss it.

Thanks for the tip on the mouse. They are F/T. 8-)
