My male Vietnamese Blue Beauty has recently started refusing food. He's always been a bit shy, as are ALL the Asian rats I keep, but never before, unless he's been shedding, has he ever adamantly refused a meal. The thing is, I have a female blue that I keep right next to him, they share an aqurium with a partition down the middle, and I have some ovulating corns in the same room. My question is, has anyone ever known male blues to go off feed during the breeding season? And also, is it possible the pheromones from the cornsnakes are what's affecting him? It's just that I can't imagine it's the female blue, as she's not quite ready to breed yet, only being *almost* 6ft long. I was planning on waiting until next year for her...
Any opinions on this are welcome and appreciated,
