Have Reptile Questions? Ask a Reptile Vet for Answers ASAP
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 20+ years with special interest in reptiles and reptile rescue.
Can you tell me are you feeding live pinkies or frozen thawed?
Have you tried other prey like toads or lizards?
Have you tried Braining the pinkies you are feeding? That will sometimes stimulate the feeding senses. The leaking of cerebral fluid is a feeding stimulant. You can also try to cover the walls of the tank with black construction paper as the snake my like it dark when feeding. If the snake was eating for the breeder with no trouble, you should not be having any issues. The diet in the wild is toads, so if you can find a toad and rub the scent on the pinkie this may be an option to help jumpstart feeding. The other option is to see the Herp Vet and have him use a pinkie pump to get the snake eating. eventually the snake being a juvenile will start suffering from not eating. You have done well with what you have tried. The options you have now is to try covering the tank, braining, scenting the pinkie with a toad, or seeing a Herp Vet to try force feeding with a Pinkie Pump. If you need a Herp Vet I can find you some with a State. Pease let me know if you need further help. If I have addressed your concerns, please take a moment to rate my service 5 stars.
