Greetings all,

I got a Borneo Short-Tailed Python several weeks ago. She was born in May, bred by the owner of the reptile shop I got her from. She last ate (according to them) on 9/5. I got her a week and a half later. They weren't that concerned that she hadn't eaten on 9/13 because she was approaching her 4 month shed mark.
I offered her food 9/20, and a couple times since then, but she wasn't interested. I offered thawed rat hoppers, first on tongs, and then leaving it in the terrarium for a couple hours.
She's now in blue so I figure I just leave her alone until she sheds because she's probably not interested in eating now anyway. Her temps are 72ish on the cold side and 80s (85ish) on the warm side. Humidity is 60% unless I mist and it goes up, obviously.
Is there anything else I should be doing? This is my first Borneo so I just want to be sure.

Thanks!
Katherine
