I've had my hognose for about 4 or 5 months and she has never had this problem before. I went to go get her more food and since she is about 2-3 feet in length now, I thought maybe she could handle a rat pup but bought the small white mice as well just in case. I tried to feed her a rat pup and she didn't want it. Understandable, it was bigger and rats tend to smell different. I'm well aware that they eat frogs and toads and whatnot in the wild but what my biggest concern is here is that she is PISSED OFF. She is striking at the mouse and my hand and hissing at anyone that comes in the room. Her temps and humidity and her day/night cycles are normal so I've ruled that out. I've tried leaving the mouse in there overnight and all she did was move it. I was told that maybe she is shedding and to keep an eye on it. No shed as of yet and she seems to be losing some weight although it does not look like enough to be a big concern; more to just keep in mind. As of today (1/25/2016), she hasn't eaten in a week and a half. I do not want to take her to the vet unless it is absolutely necessary.
