Thanks! I am about to try and feed it ans extra small pinkie.This is my main concern of her being so tiny.Tinniest viper I ever kept.Got it from Glades herp farm and the man said it eats these pinks but you most tease feed from tongs.

Ah yes, the great little Eyelash Viper. If you have trouble with it eating they will also take pinks scented with fish pretty easily(yeah sounds funny for an arboreal but it really works) or just brain them. Most will eat from tongs their whole lives which is pretty awesome. And for hydration if it does not seem to like drinking from a bowl, use either a stream like squirt bottle and gently spray a small stream around the front of the lips or misting will work also. A few people I know use the little dripper thing for them to drink from whenever they are thirsty. A good plant choice for these guys in a tank is any Pothos and they are very hardy and cheap, but you will occasionally have to trim it back. They are very fragile as babies so be careful with it. Alot of people don't have too much luck with baby schlegeli's. On the great side, you chose the green and cinnamon color variation which is honestly my favorite. They look so great as adults. Good luck
