 Picky about the gender of its meal?

So, my Columbian rainbow has been rejecting all female rats. Alive or dead. No hesitation with males.
Is this normal behavior? Just curious.

Wow this is the first time hearing this lol but I’m guessing every indiviual has their likes and dislikes for example my adult redtail hates uvb bulbs(I don’t know why) but that was the cause of him going off feed for nearly 3 weeks.

That one is new to me, too. Maybe she’s showing gender solidarity? ;-)

Yeah I guess that’s true lol. This isn’t too new a behaviour but I had just been thinking the snake wasn’t hungry or something was wrong with the rat. Then I noticed it’s all been females

Lol, maybe. She’s been a bit picky about colored rats too. She seems to really prefer all white male rats. Multicolored rats have been denied almost as much as the females.
