 How Do I Get My Baby Hognose To Eat?

Since I don’t have any mice or toads, how can I get my hognose snake to eat crickets or lizards? I have an Eastern Hognose that is only several inches long. Thanks!

 How Do I Get My Baby Hognose To Eat?

You need to feed it pinkys ( baby mice) if you can’t do that or any reason you need to find someone who will. Its not easy to get them to eat but If you can’t its going to die. Where did you get your hognose? try calling the person and ask what to do about feeding it. If you caught it were do you live? and how much do you want for it. I have been wanting an eastern all they had at the reptile show was westerns. I breed mice and mine is eatting 2 pinkys every 1-2 weeks. Depending on when he wants to eat them. I also have pet toads that I could scent them with if he didn’t take them unscented.
