    I'll be weighing out pros/cons before making a decision.

    Thanks for your thoughts! I always appreciate your guidance.
    Bear in mind that most snakes in captivity are overfed, so you may have to engage in some tough love and wait him out. Once he's hungry enough he'll eat; snakes in the wild can't be picky.

    Heck we know how picky ball pythons can be about eating, but I've had neglected adult rescues take f/t chicks, go figure. When they are hungry enough they will eat.

    Yeah, I've been using the tough love approach. I'll wait him out here and there. Especially when I see a shed coming. He just won't take F/T with any consistency.
    He was still maintaining a good body structure. But after his poop/pee he's down almost 300 grams and looking a bit thin. But I'm not sweating it, he's not unhealthy by any means.
