Hi, This is my first post and I am after some advice as we are having an issue with our young spotted python refusing to eat. We have had her for 5 months and during this time she has not eaten anything. She is approx 13 months old and was purchased through a breeder with a well established feeding pattern. However, since getting her she has not eaten anything. We have taken her to a reptile vet numerous times who have tube fed her and shown me how to tube feed her at home which we are doing when she refuses to eat. We always offer her a proper meal first before resorting to this. We have had her bloodwork done and all is fine asides from some minor vitamin/mineral issues from not eating. We have tried most things e.g pinkies, brained and unbrained, pinkie rats, small fuzzy's, bits of quail, even lizards but she is not interested in eating anything. We have tried feeding her in her enclosure, out of her enclosure in a separate tub, leaving them in overnight, different times of the day and night. Her setup is fine, temps are all good. She has hides in the cool and warm sides and the humidity is kept right. She is in a glass and melamine enclosure. The vets have checked our setup and assure me it is fine. Another weird thing is that she keeps shedding, like she will finish a shed and then a couple of days later she begins to shed again. Obviously she does not want to eat when she is shedding. Is there a reason for continuous shedding? She has minimal handling, but she is a lovely little thing, she is quite happy to come out and has never shown any aggression. She is active, not lethargic at all and apart from the not eating she seems extremely happy. We are just hoping to get some advice as this is getting worrying. The vets have told me to just keep trying and we will go back down to re-evaluate the situation again soon, but any advice/tips/experiences would be super helpful. Thankyou for reading!
