My biggest female hadn’t eaten since 11/15. I thought it was just because her last meal was huge but I think I overlooked something. I’ve been feeding live since moving in early December and she’s refused every meal. Tonight I had a snake kill but not eat a rat so I laid it in her tub and she ate it immediately. Now that I look back through her logs she never went off f/t for long enough for me to need to try live so it never occurred to me she might not prefer them.
I hope this fast doesn’t cost me a clutch from her I’ve seen 3 locks with my male.
I’ll have to get a few meals in her before I resume pairing…
Has anyone else ever had a snake that won’t eat live but only likes f/t or pre killed? Never heard of that reverse pickiness before.
