I have a ball python that used to only eat mice as an adult. Talk about aggravating. Then, one day he (or she....not quite sure) went off food. Didn't eat for 16 months straight. Drank water, shed, but didn't eat. I was sure it was going to die.

But it didn't. Seven years later it's still going strong. Will sometimes go off food for a month or two now, but not long stretches like that one time.

Then again, I had a male pastel that refused food for the firs time ever last year and was dead the next day. Never can tell.

In both cases, they had clean water, clean cages, and optimal temps. Still can't figure it out.
