Back in April I acquired a Female Normal 100% Het Pied Ball Python. Since then I am having issues with her eating. She was born 11/26/2019 and I acquired her on 4/7/2021 at 860g. Her current weight is 748g. Seller claims she was on live.
I got her to eat 2 times so far. Once on 4/28/2021 (pup rat-live) and on 5/15/2021 (small ASF-live).
I’ve tried the following…
Weaned Sized Rat
Pup Sizes Rat (took once)
Small Sized Rat
Small ASF (took once)
Frozen/Thawed (all sizes)
Skipping 2 Weeks
Hide and No Hide
Temps and humidity are perfect. I dont know what else to try. She still has decent body condition but she is losing alot of weight and shows no interest in eating. She seems more scared of the prey. She is super sweet and does not show any signs of being sick. Also note she has pooped and shed after eating both times since I got her but both times the prey was way to small for a snake of her size.
There’s a possibility she is at a pre 1000g wall but I’ve never had this issue before so early. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
