Snake Accidental Hibernation
i own a spotted python (aprox 2 years old) and he has recently stopped eating and has not been doing much. I if someone could give me some idea of what is happening that would be great. his temps are still normal but he is coiled in the the end of the tank
Perfectly normal, most mature antaresia will brumate regardless of the temperatures. You will probably find that there is a drop in temps in the early hours of the morning, which is enough of a signal. Even just cold air filtering through is enough to make send them into brumation. Just keep it as is and it should resume eating in the next few months on it's own.
What Girdheinz said. My stimmie is still eating (I'm in Cairns), but she's nowhere near as active as she is in summer. As long as your snake isn't losing condition, he will be fine and will begin to eat when the weather warms up.Proud custodian of Zephyr, a female wheatbelt Stimmie (hatched 13/12/10)

Renenet needs to stop looking at pictures of pretty snakes.
