Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I'm a biologist with a special interest in reptiles. I appreciate logins for the delay. Different experts come online at various times. I just logged on and saw your question. Some additional information will be useful. What temperature do you maintain in the enclosure? Has your snake passed any droppings since the last time you fed him? Check the skin on his neck. Is it wrinkled or puckered? Was his last shed easy? What do you feed him? Thank you.
