    Ah, yes!!! I forgot to mention that in my reply. I was falling asleep and forgot, but came back this morning specifically to mention this.

    Refrain from handling until the animal is eating. I personally, would keep handling to a 100% bare minimum until the snake has gotten 3 meals.

    Ideally a photo or two would be very helpful .

    The crucial concern for me is ALWAYS the surface temps so I'd like to know what kind of thermometer you are using it a circular stick-on one or a standing one or one with a wired probe ?

    The free TapaTalk app is great for uploading photos if you're struggling.

    Two identical hides is a must asap - one on warm side and the other on the cool side even a third in the middle but that's not as crucial.

    Always feed in the evenings, in low /dim light ... also many Royal / Ball Pythons will ONLY strike from their hides and if you try feeding them whilst they're out and about in the viv they will most likely just move away from it nervously..

    Of course I'm going to advise you to read up on and then try the hairdryer method !!

    And Zincubus is spot on. We need to know more to help troubleshoot what's going on.

    OP, the more you tell us the better we can help you. is beautiful...

    itís a tank so I guess Iím gonna have to cover the three sides with something. And ya I was thinking we were trying too hard to get her to eat that it could be stressful so Iím gonna wait 5 days until I try again.
