I have been wanting to get a ball python for awhile. I've done countless amounts of research on it, and I know that they have a tendency to be picky eaters. Some people I have watched have had to feed their ball pythons live food because they wouldn't eat anything else. I know that it is often dangerous to feed a snake live food due to the food fighting back, so I really don't ever want to feed live. I know a lot of people who have never had a problem feeding their ball python, but there are also many others that have. I will definitely be buying one from a breeder that has been feeding frozen thawed rodents all of the snake's life if I do choose to get one. My question (finally) is, what are the chances that a ball python that has never eaten live will go on a hunger strike until it gets live?
