I posted the other day about my grandsnake not eating (I'm looking after the little guy while my daughter is away visiting her dad). Bandit is a 10 month (roughly) Bredli x Jungle python and hadn't eaten since we brought it home about two months ago. I haven't handled it for a couple of days as I thought maybe it's getting picked up too much and tonight we fed it a rat pinkie in the dark (read that some snakes may take prey better that way) and low and behold the little bugger took, constricted and swallowed. Have to say I am very happy right now (look at me getting emotionally invested). I took some photos while camera light was on (not flash). Sooo relieved.

Good stuff mate. I found bagging a mouse helped my JP take his food when i first got him when he was little like a shoelace.

Paper bag with holes in it and snake and defrosted mouse enter bag. hopefully next morning only one comes out. Couple times of this and he was eating on his own terms.

Looks like you found your solution though.
