Re: VBB not eating.

If the temps are good and the snake isn't ill I wouldn't be worried at all. A lot of snakes, especially males, will take long food breaks during the colder months or breeding seasons. I'd space out the time between feedings to every 2-3 weeks until he's eating consistently again. I have one younger snake that I was feeding weekly and she was always hit or miss. Same thing with bi-weekly feedings. Now I give her food every three weeks and she eats almost all of the time. Your adult snake is well established and knows what it needs. I'm confident he'll get back on track soon.
