Honduran Behaving unusally

Hello all,

I'm new to this site and fairly new to snakes as pets too.

I bought a Honduran Milk in February this year. He's about 18 months to 2 years old. (I don't have the hatch date). He's in good health, measures about 4'6" and is a good weight. He's always been a good feeder (he even fed when he first came home) and has never refused to feed before now. His vivarium is set to the right temps. He's a very chilled out snake as a general rule, never bites and is generally happy to be handled.

The last three times I've tried to feed him, he's refused to eat. He's also become suddenly very active in the last few days. He's waking up early evening time and spends all his time trying to get out of his vivarium. He's so vigorous at this that substrate gets shoved about all over the place, and his water bowl and hides get pushed everywhere.

I've been bringing him out when he does this. as soon as he gets out he calms right down and is just happy to mooch about as usual but when he goes back in the vivarium he just tries to get back out again.

Any suggestions about why he's behaving like this? And what should I do? I know that snakes do fast from time to time. But how long should I let him go without eating before I worry? Should I fetch him out more if that's what he seems to want?

Thanks!

Joy
