>>Our Cal. King seems to have reached her adult size and now seems to be eating much less frequently than she did as a juvie... She used to want a meal about once per week, then it was once every two, now she's only eating once a month or less. She's alert and often explores around her tank, but when we offer her a mouse (same size she hungrily ate before), it turns out she just wants to come out and play.

>>We're tired of thawing out mice to throw away, but we don't want her to starve... Any advice?

Sounds like she, might be a Him, and this time of year is only thinking about other females. Sounds like my male Cal kings eating habits, at this time of year.
