I bought a 20 gallon- tank and Coco went home with me. 1 month later, Coco is not biting anymore (just twice the first week as I was giving him bath for the tail as he had multiple sheds stuck on it). He shed two weeks after I adopted him, an incomplete shed. He just shed, a complete one, today, end of tail included. I had trouble feeding him first, I added some heating pad in his tank and gave him pinkies. He is now back to fuzzies.
I measured his shed: 22 inches and after eating 3 fuzzies yesterday (he did I eat last week), pooping today, he weighs 62 grams.
I don't know how old he is or if Coco is a male or a female,but I am glad that he is not in a small tank anymore!
Hi. Welcome to the forum!

Based on the weight of the snake In guessing Coco is a ball python?

If so, pinkies and fuzzies are WAY too small for a BP.

Also, did you put the heat pad IN the enclosure. And is it regulated by a THERMOSTAT??
