This may or not be a problem, as this is normal for the winter season. However I would expect they would get getting out of brumation rather then going into it?

My BP's are the same right now, I tried to offer a live fuzzy a couple nights ago and the BP just curled up around the fuzzy. Fuzzy thought is was great, what a heck of pillow. Fuzzy fell asleep leaning against the BP..I would have preferred the BP to chow down but I guess I will try again on the weekend.

The BP are young. I am aware that a fuzzy is too small of a food item. It was put in to initiate a feeding response. The F/T Adult mouse was waiting. No luck at that time, I will be trying a live rat pup today.we'll see if that helps...

My vet said that they will be fine as long as they do not lose visable body weight. My Dumerills has gone 4 months between meals. Took him to the vet and she said no big deal.

I the wild they dont grab a meal every week on the dot they get spurts of food and then no food snakes can go for a long time up to a year (for large adults in certain conditions) without food cold blooded creatures dont require the food warm bloods do croc's eat like every 8 months in the wild how ever it is a huge meal
