Baby Male Garter Finally Ate!

Guess who ate 2 tiny earthworms & a chunk of frozen, chopped pinky mouse? I’m SO relieved! He’s been with us for 6 days and last night was the first time I have seen him eat! His Liddel Lady Love has eaten like a champ every day, but I got the idea of giving him his own eating space from YouTube because I think her eager eating response was intimidating to him. I’m just SO happy he finally ate!!!


He & she just both took tiny earthworms from tongs (YES!) and then he ate 3 chunks of frozen thawed pinkie mouse on his own from the dish. I didn’t have to separate him today to get him to eat…she wants me to let her go fishing for them, but that’s a really messy way to feed & I’m trying to get her to accept less messy methods of eating. My eventual goal is all tong-Feeding.

I need names for these cuties! :heart_eyes:


I think that cute names would be Prince and Damsel

How about Arsenic and (Old) Lace? You could then call her Lacey!

You could name one Des and the other Troy, so they have a pair name Destroy. :smile:
