Thanks again!
As I said the reason he has been off fed is because of breeding season. He will this every year and nothing to worry about. Most all male carpet pythons (and most other male species) do this from the months of Nov - March.

Perfectly normal.

How carpet can know about breeding season if he dont have a winter ?

P/S/ as far as I know it's better use heat pads for nocturnal snakes and lamps for day snakes.

They know. Just because we keep them in an artificial environment doesnít mean they canít sense the real environment outside. Such as seasons.

His male got cool enough during the cool months that it triggered a breeding response.
This is very common for adult Snakes.

This ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^. Also, the general internal clock that these animals (reptiles) possess relays information about seasons, pressures, and positioning. Everything Derek said.
