I have a female W. Hognose that I picked up in Jan of last year as a hatchling. She's never really been a problem feeder. I switched her from live to f/t and she's been taken big fuzzies/ small hoppers in the past. She's about 20" long and not as big around as a big marker. She's more like a Sharpie really.

She was at 136g in Feb, but she hasn't eaten since then. She weighed 123g earlier this month, and I weighed her again a few minutes ago and she's still at 123g. So she's not losing weight, but still hasn't had food in a month.

Nothing has changed in her enclosure, she's got a warm spot in the mid to upper 90s and a cool spot that is upper 70s. Temps are taken with a IR temp gun. She has 2 hides and a water dish. On the cool side, the mulch is deep enough she can burrow if she wants to.

I thought she might go off feed a bit in the winter, but it is almost April. Should she start eating again soon? How long should this last?

Thanks!
