Lark - Ultramel Tessera

Can't believe I forgot to make a thread for this girl! This is Lark. She was part of the group of non-feeders I purchased. Despite eating for me the very first time I offered her food, she went on to be one of the most stubborn babies of the group! However, after months of working with her, she finally got with the program. Nowadays, she's an extremely zealous eater, never refuses a meal, and loves to strike and coil her prey. And on top of that, she has an exceptionally sweet personality and doesn't mind being handled.

Thank you!

Lark is a beautiful testament to why it can be worth it to work with the stubborn babies. So many times, once they decide to get with the program they become all-around great snaked in terms of feeding and handling. When they're as pretty as this girl, it's a wonderful bonus!

Agreed! I also enjoy the challenge of figuring out what they like.

She's beautiful!
The extra effort definitely pays off sometimes!

Possible drawback to breeding these challenging feeders is producing more challenging and or non feeders.....

Yes and I'm very curious to see if there's a genetic component. Several of them will be breeding in the coming years and if I have a greater number of non-feeding babies from them, then I will make a post about it. Have you bred previous non-feeders and noticed their babies being non-feeders?

Never kept any non-feeders. I just don’t have the patience for non-feeders (too many corn snakes in my collection to deal with them) no matter if it’s something I’ve been line breeding for. So I’ve been culling them out for years. I’ve noticed that the last few years I haven’t had non-feeders hatch. My assumption is possibly genetic.?.??? Not a scientific study just something I noticed.
