    Most retics start off taking live food, but a fair amount can be transferred over to frozen/thawed prey items, or freshly killed prey items. If your reticulated python is not willing to take frozen/thawed food at first, offer it occasionally and the snake may begin to accept it eventually. In their natural habitat, young grey rat snakes prey on lizards and frogs. This is not recommended for captive snakes, as feeder frogs and lizards are often highly parasitized, and can make your snake sick. Feeding a rat snake a frozen-thawed rodent may require transferring the scent of a lizard or frog to the rodent being offered.   These miniature animals can be kept in a 15 gallon tank, but even two snakes will be fine in a 20 gallon. It the wild, this species feeds mostly on frogs and lizards, so naturally they can be finicky when younger, which is the case with most snakes. Nearly all available Children's pythons will be acclimated to eating frozen/thawed s: 1.
