Hi!

May remember me, I'm a newbie (sort of) with a Pacman that's a little over a year and a half old. For the last few months he's been refusing food when offered, accepting maybe once a month...but tonight when i changed his bedding he snapped at his water as though he's starving, so Im heating him a fuzzy to see if he eats it (its the size of a pinky, but it has hair, its not a large fuzzy)
Note: he INHALED the mouse, snapped it up right to its tail in one bite even though he ate last week...

He's 2.5 inches wide, but was 3 before this happened. Maybe a little over three, like 3 1/4.

He is offered one of those pinky-sized fuzzies every other week, or every 2 weeks if hes been refusing.

He refuses crickets, though once ate superworms when i was at school and couldnt find mice.

Should I try the worms again?

Should I lengthen time between feedings? Is he hibernating?

Note: his temperature and substrate are REGULATED... he's in jungle bed, occassionally he gets moss but not always. he's pretty well hydrated, i know i could prolly keep him more hydrated but the bedding doesnt get dry, it just gets less moist. and its not kept so wet that there are pools of water, its a nice medium moist.

any advice? is this normal? will his growth start back up?

basically, please tell me if i'm doing a good job.
