5 days is way too short a period to worry about its fasting. For all you know it could be about to shed.

Give it another week or even more and avoid handling it or stressing it in any way. Mist its cage and provide drinking water suspended on its branch. You'd be surprised how long snakes can fast.

If you have queries, you can e-mail me. Good luck!

: Hi Ahaetulla,
: I'm making a wild guess base on your username that you keep or are into whip snakes.

: I recently acquired a whip snake (Ahaetulla Prasnia) and it looks pretty healthy. However, its been 5 days since I got it and it has not eaten anything. I've tried offering house geckos, froglets, crickets, even mealworms, but it has not shown any interest.

: As this is my first snake (I'm into frogs), what I know is very limited and most sites I search thru' provides info that seems to assume that the person reading already knows everything about keeping snakes.

: I really hope you can shed some light as to why my snake is not feeding. If this continues, I'll probably release it back to where I got it.

: thanks and regards,
: dendrobate
