The only health related change would be that he shed his skin two weeks ago on the night/morning of the 24th/25th of may, and he hadnt eaten three weeks prior to that.(last feed was a small rat on 4/26, and one was a week before that on 4/19.) I have kept a very close eye on all his temps, his basking spot is constantly between 87-89 degrees, ambient is between 74-78. the only real significant change would be that i changed his hidebox and have started taking his waterdish out since he would soak in there for a while, and i recently tossed in an old t-shirt since he would burrow under the newspaper substrate (he seems to use the t-shirt a lot now to hide and sleep in). ive tried weekly feedings each time but no luck; should i skip this weeks attempt and try again next sunday? it will be 6 weeks no feeding total as of june 7th
