More advice needed with my juvenile spotted!


Not so new Member
Since his purchase, my juvenile spotted python has been refusing to feed on a weekly, between 7-10 days basis which is necessary for such a juvenile python. I'm increasingly concerned by this, as his appetite should be driving him in those weekly periods as such a young snake - as I understand it. Without food obviously he will not grow and will encounter problems, neither of which I want. Does anyone have a solution?

How old? How long have you had him? How is his tank set up? Temperatures? Hides? Is he about to shed?

Is the mouse warm when you offer it to them?
Have you tried bleeding and/or braining the mouse?
Does their enclosure have enough hiding places for them to feel secure enough to eat?
