    I bought my snake two fuzzies but due to their size I thought it best not to give her two at once. I will pobably wait a few days to feed her the other fuzzy and I was wondering what I should do to care for the mouse until I feed my snake again.

    Well if it a pink or fuzzy it has not been weened yet and still needs its mothers milk. Without it, it will probably die within 36 hours. Possibly much sooner depending on how old it is.

    They do make artificial milk (like formula for human babys) that you can bottle/cloth feed them with. However, it is a little pricey for your purpose. You could buy a whole bunch of pinkies for the price of the formula. I suggest not buying more pinkies/fuzzies than what you are going to use that day.

    or you could always just get pre-killed pinkies/fuzzies, they will last alot longer pluse it takes up to a week for a snake to fully digest a meal... so i wouldent suggest feeding to frequently.
