A couple things. Yes they can be docile, however, sounds like she is sick. She sounds like she has RI. So being sick, she comes back to your husband because he is warm 98 degrees or so, and she senses that. When they have RI they do not eat. You will need to see a vet and get her some shots. Also, crank the temp up in the cage to 88 degrees consistently, and raise the humidity up for the time being. Don't handle her so much. She will need to get back.

If it is no RI, and I would be shocked if it was not, you need to give her time to adjust to her new home. Snakes do not eat when they are nervous, they usually strike, however if they are sick they may not. My retic is a perfect example, he had RI and was the camlest I have ever seen him. Right there I knew there was a problem. I took him in and he did. I gave him shots and now he is back to being aggressive with his food.

Also when you are feeding are you feeding live, pre killed and just laying in there, or wiggling it in front of her. The prey should be warm to the touch but not hot.

If you caught this sooner, you may not need the shots, however from what I am told if you see it in the nose, you need the shots. A slight weeze is also a good sign.

Good Luck

Jeff
