 Plains Garter Not Eating!!

She is around 3 years old and is healthy. has eaten pre-killed mice since she was born. Never had a problem. Took her to the vets the other week for a health check up and since then she will not eat. to begin with i offered them every week and she showed no interest whatsoever but now i am offering every 10 days. she will show a little interest and then not be interested. This has been going on for 5 weeks now. Does anyone have any ideas that will get her eating again??

Try a more active forum. www.thamnophis.com

I’ve never waited more than an hour for responses to questions. Most of the members are very experienced garter snake keepers and breeders.

Does your Garter look like duller than usual? Your Garter might be shedding, they stop eating when they do that.

7 weeks? And she’s STILL alive? I have no idea what’s going on. She isn’t pregnant or anything, right?
