Re: Carpet stop eating

I'm glad she ate again for you kazz. Your girl looks pretty healthy though even if she doesn't eat much. You must be a very patient person. I can't imagine regularly feeding a snake more than 2 prey items at a time and then wondering if those will be wasted. If she wants to eat that sporadically you could offer her less food less often and perhaps she'll be more likely to eat whenever food is presented. You might try scaling her back to every 3-4 weeks and see if she improves. That's the schedule my albino carpet was on when she was younger and rarely eating. She's gotten more consistent and now she eats about every 2 weeks.
