    It's just so frustrating when you try to help somebody and they blatantly disregard your advice. But hey, that's why this thread has 4 actual replies in almost 3 weeks.

    Meanwhile, similar threads that people can actually read will get 10 replies in an hour. Seems obvious to me...but hey, OP clearly will continue to do things his/her way...and get no help....its too bad, the animal will be the one to suffer from the ignorance.

    Are you using a probed thermometer or one of those circu, stick on plastic ones ??

    Incidentally ]

    My Royals / Ball pythons will ONLY strike feed from the security of a hide !!

    Next time , wait until evening .. dim /low lighting ... wait until he's settled under a hide .. plug the hairdryer in close to the snake viv / tub then blast the rat /mouse for 15 seconds then using kitchen tongs ...instantly dangle the rat in front of the hide entrance ..

    If there is any interest shown then just repeat the process exactly

    Re: another post my ball python won't eat

    Hi Zincubus i use a probe thermostat for a reference mostly i go by the infrared thermometer the temps are fine.

    Today i went to the pet store and bought a live rat i waited for lights out and it didn't last long my snake is digesting as we speak. i don't know why she lost interest on the frozen thawed maybe got tired of it lol.i'm relieved she ate.i guess pythons get moody sometimes.

    Could be anything ... mine take thawed frozen but only from under their hides ... if they're out and about or climbing and I dangle a rat in front of them they just run for the hills

    Mine is the same

    Yes my BP is the same way when I Dingle a rat has to be inside the hide,the live rat I just dropped it in the enclosure and I came back 1 hour later and it was gone.im going to feed a 2 or 3 more times on live and see if it will go back to Frozen thawed.it could he the smell or the color.Also my BP is very territorial anything that goes in the enclosure he will attack it.

    Re: another post my ball python won't eat

    hey guys i hope all of you had a good Christmas and a good new year,all my animals are doing well but my BP still won't eat i think since july she ate twice from 340 she is down to 300g but she does not look good weight wise she is active at night today i fed her with a syringe the caterer i used is for birds at first was rough but once i had the caterer in there and started pumping the food was not that bad at all the snake stayed still i'm going to try this 3 to 4 times a week,i'm thinking my snake is been off feed for a long time she needs energy,also recently the urates are bright yellow but that could be dehydration not drinking enough im giving her some carnivore care i have on the fridge.
