    Nevermind, it is shed. It's around her neck right now, so I'll keep an eye to make sure it comes off. I'll try not to move to give her some time.

    That helps explain the no eating.

    Impressive! And now maybe she'll eat for you too.

    Re: New Scrub - Very Frightened / Nervous

    Holy crap, that is a big shed! 😂 Yeah, it always seems to take mine much longer to go through the shedding process than other snakes. And the color change is so fast and subtle, you might not notice. Yay, maybe she’ll come out and play and snack for you now!

    Did not eat left it overnight. She crawled all over it, but didnt show any interest. She's still hiding everytime I'm nearby, so no chance she'll take it from tongs.

    Are you warming the prey item up pretty good before offering it to your snake? And are you drop feeding initially or trying from tongs first? Your scrub is an established feeder and after a shed I'd think she'd be ready to eat. How are you heating your enclosure and what are your temps like?

    Yea, I thaw it with cold water, then warm water for like 20 minutes. I tried with tongs trying to bring her out of the hide for 5 minutes or so, until my arm is tired, but she wont come out, so I leave it.

    Does she have something to perch on? At this point I'd leave her completely alone, except for water changes, for a solid 2 weeks. She'll get hungry eventually and will start looking for food. I wouldn't even try feeding her until I saw her perched or roaming for food. Also, try superheating the rat with a hairdryer for a few seconds before offering it to your snake. I usually heat the rats up to about 100F.
