B.hamorii sling feeding.

I've had a b.hamorii sling for 3 weeks now and was starting to worry as it refused food. I tried live and prekill offerings. Even leaving the prekills in for 48 hrs to give it a chance to scavenge. Tonight I looked in after leaving a prekill in earlier in the day and it had taken the item into its hide and was feeding. Just thought I'd share incase anyone else is experiencing the same.

B smithi slings are the same too. It'll refuse food for weeks whether or not it's in premoult.
