ATB Sexing and Feeding

Any of you ATB fans out there can shed some light on these topics.

I have been hearing you can potentially tell males from females by:

  1. head size/ shape
  2. scales
  3. tail size/ shape/ length
    I have a neonate it is not too bad as far as aggression. I am just concerned due to its small and tiny size that I could maybe harm it by “popping” or “probing”. I appreciate any help on this.

Again this is a young one, do they tend to just start eating motionless frozen thawed on their own like other pythons and boas? Or is there always the need to dance the prey around on tongs to make it appear living?
