 Feeding problem

Sorry I missed this Joe,

I have a male that went off feed for 6 months ...Oct 2010- April 2011...he is right back on track now and pounding everything offered. It was a nerve wracking time...continued to shed anyway...2 or 3 x
Since this is my first retic at 10 feet (dwarf) I will wait for this coming Oct to see what happens again.

Temps were kept optimal all year ...didn’t seem to matter

Temps seem a ’lil high on the cool side, but other than that it’s more than likely just breeding season.

It’s October again ...sure as the sun shines around the 18th I offered another rabbit...the snake acted hungry...alert as all get out... they kissed and made friends...I have a 3 lb rabbit in a cage now ...

It is looking more and more like maybe my snake is female....lack of prominent spurs at the vent... going off feed every Oct. 2 years in a row?

Do males do that ?

I am going to have to buy a probe kit....lol
