I have a one year plus female florida king that I am having difficulty feeding. All my others eat f/t but this one is causing a problem. Currently, it will take the f/t mouse and constrict, but it won't eat it. This goes on multiple times during each feeding session. After multiple times I just leave the mouse in the enclosure hoping to find it gone the next morning, but this hasn't happened. I find it lying in the enclosure the next morning. The snake hasn't eaten in about 3 mos. now; however, prior, she would occasionally take f/t, but always preferred live. I don't want to give live. I need to go a considerable distance to get a live mouse and I don't want to breed them.

Any information, suggestions, advice will be appreciated.

Thanks,
JMo
