Young Ball Python suddenly fasting

Hi all

In desperate need of some advice and help. i have a young female butter pastel when i bought her (beginning of February) was told she hatched in December, shes on small thawed mice and has shed once since i got her.

Everything's been going great with her until all of a sudden bang shes fasting, when i got her she weighed 126g i weighed her yesterday and still shes sitting at 126g.

Nothing has changed temperature and humidity is still the same which is bang on the mark, i haven't changed feed suppliers or anything. I have tried every trick in the book to try to entice her to feed but shes just not having any of it, Should i be concerned? is there anything you can maybe suggest? below is a list of methods i have tried.

Dry thawing
Wet thawing
wet thawing then using a hairdryer to dry mouse off a little
Braining
leaving the mouse in her vivarium for a 24 hour period with the vivarium darkened
have put the mouse in the vivarium and lightly misted the vivarium
also with the mouse brained.

Any help would be great thanks

Hi all

I appreciate am possibly posting this in the wrong section so my apologies for that.

I have tried starting a new thread in the general discussion but with no avail!

1. Please don't make multiple threads for the same question.

2. You've had the snake for maybe 5 weeks and tried 7 different methods of feeding? Time to slow down. You're bugging your snake too much.

Ensure you have the right humidity, heat, and snug hides for the snake. Then offer the snake the same type of meal, once every 5 days. Leave the thawed rodent in overnight because it can't hurt the snake.
