A week ago we got in about 9 young pythons that were brought by a kid that said he couldn't eat these so he wanted to sell them. I asked what happened to the mother and he said his family had it for dinner. So I gave him a dollar and told him that pythons were beneficial to the environment by getting rid of the rats that eat their maize and vegetables.
After inspecting them I found that 3 of them were dehydrated. You can tell by the wrinkled skin around their head. So I tried to feed them with pinkees (baby mice), but they didn't react to it. So I forced fed them with a small piece of goat liver each.
Feeding should be done once a week with a small mouse or a a small rodent the size of their body.
