Might be the season - barometric pressure / season change may have something to do with it... As long as you're offering and the snake is refusing - and the snake looks healthy (no weazing anorexia etc) I wouldn't worry. If the same thing happens in through to summer it might be cause for concern... Make sure the snake has a hide, proper humidity, and a properly sized cage... basically all the usual stuff - sorry if this seems simple to you - I'm not aware of your experience level so don't be offended...

:When I purchased my first ATB last fall I was told he was eating 2 mice every 7-10 days. Now he eats one mouse every 3 weeks. I keep him at 82-98 degrees and >70% humidity. Is this normal feeding behavior for the winter?
