Re: Hatchling won't eat

Ball pythons have a spinal ridge, it's quite common in snakes. That bp doesn't look underweight in the slightest. Even a baby should easily be able to go 4-6 months without food before they start losing weight, as long as they had at least a few meals. A baby that just absorbed it's yolk should still be able to go another 2-3 months or more before they start losing weight, and not having an actual meal may not even affect the amount of time without food. After all, they still had food in their yolk.
