Hello All,

This is my first year breeding pythons and I started off with a beautiful, well-cared for pair of proven womas. My female laid a tremendous clutch of 21 eggs. Not all were fertile, but the majority was. I can't imagine how strenuous of an event this was for her. Everything seems to be great so far other than we're approaching 72 hours and she still has yet to take a meal. She's moving around a lot and very active but refusing to eat. I've tried frozen and directly pre-killed with no success. She's typically a very veracious eater.

I've cleaned her cage thoroughly with Novisan solution and rinsed thoroughly outdoors and left to sun dry in attempts to safely remove the smell left by her clutch. Should I be worried? Clean the cage again? Give her more time? I'm at an absolute loss and as a first time breeder/dad who cares deeply for his animals I'm quite the stressed mess at the moment. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
