HBT..While R2 MAY be right and all of his suggestions are excellent, don't get too worried if your snake doesn't look ill,has normal activity, respirations...Especially if he's a well established animal..My prize Dry's not infrequently go on hunger strikes for 1-2 months..We're talking 7-8 footers here, and then just become ravenous for a few weeks/months and then turn off again..I've never figured it out...Better men than I have the same experience..They also say a Dry will let yoou know when he's eaten enough(i.e. Can't overfeed them...Possibly right) If he's previously been the picture of health and has no exposures or visible symptoms, just check what RR said and if all seems well, don't sweat it...Don't get panic, give him some time, maybe increse temperature a couple of degrees...As they will eat anything, a different table fare may well be the ticket...Keeps us posted..Carl

::Yo HB, unfortunately my friend...to get good advice...you must first do a bit of work :( :(, the good news is its w/ your fingers....
::Your home location, detailed cage description & conditions/temp & moisture gradients/the history of your cribos feeding/shedding/activity habits all constitute minimum info. to get meanigful advice. A series of jpgs in a powerpoint file would be useful too.
::Standing by, r-squared...

:::Hi people longtime no post; anyway my male is giving me an super-hard time about his feeding. He hasn't fed for me(or himself)in about a month.This is not him by a longshot, he won't take raw catfish(or any for that matter), no live fish, no rodents period. Do you think I should try feeder snakes or (quails), or rabbit pinkies. Help me people, share your knowledge with me asap
:::Thanx, Hassan-Abdul
