Western Blackneck Garter help

I acquired one this year and all I can get it to eat is spadefoots and my supply is running low. Does anyone have any tips to get them converted to mice? I've tried scenting but it isn't working. I've also tried minnows, no interest there. Any help is appreciated!

Re: Checking traps in New Mexico

Thank you for all the comments! Awesome stuff. I would think that you'd turn up some hognose and the occasional milk in the pit traps? You would think. I think we have turned up one hognose. Milks are very secretive and very hard to come by in this area. I wouldn't say it's impossible, but it is pre...

The adult kings are as follows:
Female: wild caught near Peach Springs, AZ
Male: was given to me by Bob Myers at the rattlesnake museum. Someone dropped it off at the museum, so I have no idea on him.

The longnose eggs are doing great and should hatch in a month or so.
