    No, no need to worry, it is common for snakes to go off their food coming into winter, and 2 weeks is nothing for a healthy python. She may even be coming up for a shed now, as thats another cause to go off eating.

    People will no doubt ask what size feed you are giving her and what your hot/cold end temps are.

    Feeding, no worries, shedding hmmm?
