Silence is golden. I have had a few personal snakes that would not eat over the years and when I would take then to the shop they ate rather quickly. I have never tried to prove this but the only real difference is sounds. Your TV Stereo etc can’t be good influences and I would love to find out for sure if there is a relationship. But certainly a quiet area would be best. Bass can’t travel long but it can travel thru almost anything.

I know this one really sounds crazy, but I had luck with some baby rat snakes by getting the tail of a FT pink caught in the lid of a deli cup. For this I set the deli cup in the normal position so the snake had to climb the side to get it. And this one I saw the snake eat or grab the pink hanging one inch off the bottom of the deli cup. And his prior feeding he ignored the pinks on the bottom.

I know they sound wacky but I have seen other herper try even stranger things to get their herps to feed.

Good luck.
