Re: Carpet python won't eat

I do agree that adding more cover is a good idea. Other than that, I don't really go through a lot of hoops when it comes to feeding my snakes. If the temps are right and the animal isn't ill I just continue to offer food until they decide they want to eat again. I had a BP that went a year without eating and he was just fine. I guess I'm more of a eat or starve kinda keeper. I've had a few animals take food breaks but haven't had one starve yet. These animals have managed to survive for millennia so I trust nature to take its course. Best wishes with your critter. I'm confident he'll eat again. Hopefully sooner than later.
