    Thanks! He's an awesome snake all around.

    He's floating anywhere between 1,000-1,100 grams. He ended his food strike a few weeks ago and hardly lost any weight. I'm happy with his body structure.

    I tend to feed on a conservative schedule too, so he's doing well.

    This year his was a bit shorter than last year. He went from mid March til the last week in May. Last year it was EXACTLY the same week that he started (crazy how they seem to "know") but he went til mid June.

    You're pretty lucky if your boy has never gone on a feeding strike til year 5. That's awesome!!!

    It doesn't even bother me anymore. As long as they're not losing weight I don't stress it.

    I typically only offer every 3-4 weeks when on a strike. But I didn't even bother trying to feed him until he started peeking out of his hide at night. Once I saw that behavior 3 nights in a row I offered, and he took it right away. I'm gonna feed him tonight since he just shed.

    Mine hasnít eat since probably November, but he looks great, he is active at night but no matter what, when I offer he moves away like he is scared of it use to he wouldnít eat white rats so I got him colored, now he turns away at any.....everything is good in his tank, meaning heat and humidity, Iím hoping he eats soon, Iím tired of stressing it

    Yeah, it can be stressful, especially after a few months. How often are you offering?

    Yeah, it's such a waste if you don't have somebody else to feed
