    There's only one type of Australian python which needs a basking lamp (Diamonds) and two others which I'd bother giving them to (bredli and Murray Darling Carpets). All other pythons including all other types of carpets I wouldn't give a lamp to, and would only give floor heat.

    Nope, no need to go to a vet. Taking a healthy snake to a vet is just a good way to waste money and pointlessly stress your snake, especially in cooler weather. Just let your new friend settle in and get comfortable :)

    Pop it in its enclosure, give it a feed and keep an eye on it.

    That's not enough information to go on. Age, sex, condition, cage conditions, what feed you offered, how you offered, temperatures, feeding history...

    Without any information we can't rule out literally any possible cause. If it's an adult the most likely explanation is that it's just choosing to stop feeding for winter.
