He finished his first shed a few days ago he had a good shed but it went over his feed day so I waited a day after he shed to feed him and he took his food ok then the next day we went out n when we got back in my partner locked in the tank and seen he had regurgitated his rat now today he is not moving and it might sound silly but it looks as if he as lost weight can anyone help me and tell me if he is ok im really worried about him.. Also it seems his head is stuck in one position I hope he is ok..

well for one thing if its been that short of time he probly hasnt lost weight its just your imagination. If he isnt moving he may me hungry and he may have regurgitatid because the portion is to big for him to eat at once, have you fed him the same portion before? Even if you have its still possible its just to big for him to swallow at once, i have a creamsicle corn who when started on fuzzied could eat them whole no problem, but later on started to regurgitate the whole ones. Try cutting the mouse in half. And as for his head he is probably just resting. But if your seriously worried about it and the position of the head continues to stay the same you may want to get him checked. Hope this helps

Were you keeping him in the same enclosure as the female?
