Re: Carpet python won't eat

What are your temps like Cody and has he lost much weight? His body condition looks pretty good in the pictures. A couple of my carpets will go off feed for a month or two during the winter but 7 months is quite a stretch. Have you always fed live? Your guy looks like mediums wouldn't be a problem but maybe try offering a smaller prey item. Also, how often are you trying to feed him? If you trust the vet and they can't find anything wrong I'd just keep offering food every 2-3 weeks. He's gotta eat eventually. I have yet to see a healthy snake starve itself to death. Best wishes and I hope he eats soon. Definitely keep us posted.
