I cannot say if its temps or not. Its just odd.

It goes back to this, Is he healthy and is he doing what you want. Is he as large as he should be? Those are some questions for you.

I too have questions about haired mice and hogs, I am going to ask today on a new thread.

I think you should try different fuzzies, and work from pinks back up to fuzzies and see what happens.

When I respond with temps and conditions with picky feeders, its normally about neonates, as neonates must feed to grow. Adults particularly males, may not have a need for anything other then maintenance feeding. In nature, adults feed to a point and go down(lower temps and conserve) On the hog sites I work, neonates feed or attempt to feed all year. Adults, not so much.

Again, adult males, good luck with that, hahahahaha, I remember back in the day when I worked kingsnakes, I have some males that I raised from the egg that grew large and strong, and during breeding season STOP feeding and only work females. To a point, I thought they were going to die, but they didn't die, they would get to a point and feed and gain their weight back.

So my question is, does this vacation from feeding take away from the snake?
