 Sick king??

my 6 month old king snake escaped her cage- found her about 3 days later she seemed okay- I fed her 2 thawed mice that night-
now it has been about 3 weeks- she will not eat-acts sick-not moving around at night or interested in the mice I have given her today--
anybody have any ideas??

Its winter time...they are aware of the change and can easily go off food for a few months....let your snake get good and hungry...3 weeks in between feedings is not uncommon I have a calif king that went off feed 4 months, one particular year ...scared me to death.

I just offered a mouse once every 3-4 weeks and 1 day BAM, the fast was over. Since I have more than 1 the other mice never went to waste
