Bull snakes require small rodents for their meals. Many wild caught snakes do not do well in captivity. If this is a snake you have caught and want to tame, you should have lt checked for parasites, as wild caught snakes can carry a heavy parasite load. A Herp Vet visit is recommened asap. Many wild caught snakes will not eat in captivity. I will give you a good care sheet that will help you with habitat and feeding. Joan
