    Hi Jack,
    In one of the photos one of the snakes (I haven't got a clue what it was, I know nothing about elapids) was eating a skink. Can you purchase already dead skinks to feed to snakes in the same way that you can mice, or was that a wild caught skink? Just wondering how people go about feeding animals that are primarily lizard and frog eaters in captivity. Is it possible to switch them to rodents? Do you breed small skinks to feed to them? If you bred a clutch of frog/lizard eating elapids, what would you get the babies started on?

    Sorry for all the noobish questions. Just curious.
