The pic of your snake...how recent is it? It looks perfect to me. If the snake maintains bodyweight similar to the pic then you are worrying over nothing. The main thing you have to supply that snake with is fresh water. The post with 20 different things to try feeding it was really overkill. Chances are, if the snake has water,,,,and is kept at proper temps it will begin feeding eventually. Kerby's comment about cooling...IS something that does indeed work. You are mimicing brumation/hibernation when you do this, and when temps rise the snakes instinct will associate that with spring and then in many cases they will eat everything in sight. The bottom line is it will do no harm to wait a while and see what happens. Something you do need to watch for is emaciation, especially close to the tail.If the skin starts folding in like a deflated tire then you have to worry. It will be noticeable. So please let me know about the time that pic was taken, and please do not offer that snake anything other than what it had ate in the past. Plain ol mouse pinkies should be fine. If you are still paranoid take more pics and post them for us to take a look at. Tom Stevens
