SteveU, you should be concerned, inappetance in an indigo is always a concern, and it reasonable to seek an explanation/solution. I have no idea your experience level, but the shed cycle is a concern. Is it possible the snake has a dried on shed, leading to dehydration and inappetance? If you aren't already doing so, I would think about soaking it in room temp water tub daily, or twice daily..it won't harm and may help if dehydrated or shedding issues. You might want to post a photo of your set up, and don't be defensive if some folks are critical, they want what is best for your snake. Be sure you have met its hydration needs, provided cover and maybe a humidity box etc. I have very occassionally had an indigo fast for no apparent reason i.e. breeding male etc. Just when I am sick with worry, both of them started again as if nothing had happened, hopefully that will be the case for you. good luck,Vic
