The first thing you want to ask is wether or not she's losing weight. Also are you attemptig to breed her? I own over 40 ball pythons, and as you can imagine, i run into these sort of problems all the time. Ball pythons are notoriously pickey eaters. If she isn't losing any weight, i wouldn't worry too much yet. I had a female given to me because she wouldn't eat. She continued this for over a year and then bam!! Been eating great ever since! ake sure your enclosure is hot enough, if temps are to cold, she could be in breeding mode. This often causes them to stop eating! Also, did anything cange from when she wasn't eating, to now. Has she been with a male? Ect.. Hope this helped a little! Let me know whats up with her! I would hate to hear you lost such a beautiful animal!
