:Hello Jesus,
: I have the same problem with my Blair's GBK right now.
: She hasn't eaten in almost a month. She is just a little
:over 1 year old, and has always been a great eater.
: "It's that time of year man!" One thing that has worked
:on some of my other snakes, has been down sizing their food.
: Just make sure the temps are up,(80-86,day,to mid 70s @ night) if not, they have a hard
:time digesting their last meal,it takes much longer, and will
:kill their feeding response.
: As long as your snake is healthy, try not to worry too much.
: I do not know the current health of your king or the conditions
:in which it lives, so it is a bit hard to try and give you any
:advise. But again, it is "that time of year", so try not to
:worry too much! Best of luck, Doc

he was eating fine on his normal schedule, and he stopped out the blue for two weeks already. i keep him at 85 degrees and he digest his food items in three days top. he in my rack and he gots a dry cage with a good size water bowl, i really dont see why he stopped feeding, the female is kept at the same conditions and she hasnt stopped feeding. iam thinking of cooling him down for a few weeks. what you think??
Jesus
