BP Stopped Eating

Hello all,

I've got a BP about 7 years old. She recently had been on feeding schedule of two weeks with Frozen/Thawed but recently has been refusing meals. The last meal she accepted was mid December and passed it a week after feeding so I wouldn't think she is constipated. It has been two months since and I haven't been able to get her to eat. Her usual fasting lands around April/June to August so I am a little concerned. I've tried scenting and dropping the large rats down to medium. I have tried leaving them in her enclosure over night but the most she'll do it move the rat around her enclosure without eating it. Just wondering how concerned I should be or if anyone has any idea what else I could try.
Thanks for your help

Re: BP Stopped Eating

You shouldn't be concerned. BPs are very picky animals. There are some reports of ball pythons going off feed for a year and surviving fine.
I would look at this article:

It has lots of helpful information, and if none of this works, I apologize.
