In Reply to: Plano/Allen area herp vet!!!!???? posted by Mike Martin on June 13, 2002 at 01:38:57:

I'm not a Vet nor know of any in your Plano area; but maybe this will help. Many snakes don't feed right away after their first shed. I have cared for hundreds of hatchling snakes after many years of captive breeding programs. Usually they should be pretty fat from absorbing nutrients from their eggsack. It may take over a week after the first shed skin before they are ready for their first pinkie or fuzzy mouse meal.

Here are a few questions you may want to answer before you seek a vet. When did your Burmese Python first shed? Does your B.P. appear healthy? Does it have saliva running out of it's mouth (possible respiratory infection). Is it kept warm enough in your house and have a hidebox to crawl in? Are you trying to feed it live/dead pinkie/fuzzie mice?

You may want to also check out the Burmese Python Forum Link below for help. They should be able to help more.

Good luck.
Joe
