: : I bought "Stone" when he was 2 months old at a PetCo Store. I picked him out of the litter cause he was very clean, alert, active, and curious. I had him in my home for 2 weeks and decided to try and feed him. He ate a dead pinky no problem. I had to move to a new home shortly after that and I tried feeding him 2 weeks later. He wouldnt eat. I tried again and new home had ants and they got all over in his tank. So, I tried to feed him in a different container and he still won't eat. But more importantly, Stone no longers plays in his tank. He just sits in one spot or the other. His body looks weaker and he seems to have loss strength when climbing his branches. Also, towards the end of his body it looks distorted, like the muscle or something has been "tweeked" or bent out of shape. His eyes look dull and brassy. They do not look shiny or glassy and dark anymore. His poop is also a light green, not sure if that means anything or not, but thought I'd throw it in there. Please! If anyone know anything to help me, let me know. I cannot afford to take him to a vet at this point. But I really like Stone and miss him being healthy and happy.

I just wanted to add that Stone now has not eaten for over a month and a half. I do not know what to do, or if that is why he is acting the way he is. But I am about to move in to my new place (2nd move since had snake) and I am not sure if I should just wait until we are settled in our permanent home. Somebody help.
