    Update on the feeding it’s been almost 2 weeks since her last feeding. I warmed up the thawed rat after letting unfreeze in the fridge , as soon as I start to wiggle the warmed up rat in her enclosure she can out of her hide. she tightened up those muscles and wait for the moment the rat stopped moving the went in with a perfect strike. Thanks for all the tips .

    I agree with everyone else and would say to feed inside their enclosure. However, if the person you got the snake from fed them outside, and that’s what your snake is used to, then I’d stick with it and slowly try to convert your snake over to eating inside it’s enclosure.

    Some husbandry and feeding info would be helpful as well. Sometimes changes in their habitat can disrupt their appetite. And of course if they are about to shed that is another reason for refusal.

    If husbandry, food portions and times, and shed is all clear and good, then I wouldn’t worry. Until you see a huge weight change then I would worry.
