Re: My jaguar carpet python won't eat!

Stay calm Paige. Lots of snakes go off feed for lots of different reasons. It can be frustrating but it just comes with the territory sometimes. Like Chairman said, let's start by double checking your husbandry. What are your temps like? How old and how large is your carpet? Can you post a picture of the snake and it's setup? Lastly, don't offer food so often. When my snakes arent eating I offer food every 10-14 days until they're back on track. They all eat eventually. As long as your snake isn't showing obvious signs of illness, or losing a significant amount of weight, then she should be fine. Sometimes they dont eat much during the colder months or breeding season. It happens to the best of us.
