As I was getting feeders out to defrost it made me wonder what everyone else does when it comes feeding time, while you have animals paired up. I keep everything in the same room, so young Boas will continue being fed, and females not being bred will be as well, regardless of the season. This sometimes makes me pause since I have some really food driven animals and the simple act of getting feeders out of the freezer will draw their attention let alone coming in with a bucket of thawed rats.
So I was curious if any of you do anything different during breeding season than you do during the rest of the year. I do try to be careful not to draw too much attention from the pairs, but that isn’t always feasible. I’ve covered the enclosure fronts in the past, and I may do it again in the future but I like being able to do a quick glance check without intruding which that impacts.
