Hi guys, I have a wc garter(caught earlier this year)who hasn't eaten in well over a month. At first I was very concerned and tried upping the heat to discourage her from brumating. Well, that didn't work. I now dig her out about once a week to make sure she's ok. She is always burrowed under her stainless steel water dish. It's the absolute coldest place in the tank. LOL. I removed the heat lamp, but she still has an under tank heater which is still working. I keep her water clean and changed, but I'm pretty sure she never ventures out from under the dish to drink any. Is there any thing else I should be doing? Or just wait it out? Her condition seems fine, but I am far from an expert. Is there anything in particular I should be watching for?

TIA!
Tami
