About them not eating, I'm not sure it has to do with the kind of food they are provided. I think it has more to do with their mobility being affected so severely that they just cannot manage to eat.

So far I have managed to feed one of these affected ones. That snake were not so badly immobilized and she managed to swallow a large fuzzie mouse.

The larger female that died stayed without food for 10 months and then I tried force feeding her with a 10 ml syringe connected to a thin plastic tubing. Food mix contained water, egg, grinded meat, calcium and B-vitamins. She died a few weeks later and I think that her methabolic system was not working.

This pic shows my largest very orange 2005 female. She has the symtoms, not being able to control her body, strange curling up, body turned upsidedown, stiffness, shivering tail.
