Exclamation Hi! Please help!

Hi! I'm a new corn snake owner. I'm concerned that she hasn't eaten in 2.5 weeks. Is this normal? Her temp is 65 on the cool side and 85 on warm. She is drinking, and I can't tell if she's about to shed (I've included pics). She is a class pet in our classroom and my students love her. Is it possible that she's stressed? Help!

Re: Hi! Please help!

Welcome aboard Colli. How long have you had her and was she eating before? Two weeks isn't a long time at all for snakes to go without food but I'm still curious as to why she's not eating. Your cool side temps are a little low imo. I'd try to get that cool side into the low 70s at least during the day. My colubrids would get temps in the high 60s but only at night during the winter months. How are the heating the enclosure and measuring the temps? I hope she starts eating soon! Keep us posted.
