 My Green Tree Python hasn’t eaten in 4 months

I have a GTP and it is now month four of him not eating. He is three years old. His cage is perfect. perfect temps, and humidity. I’ve tried everything i can think of. scented mice. quail. hamsters. gerbils. African soft-furred rats. live, prekilled, frozen/thawed. no dice. i have taken him to the vet. no parasites or illness. he’s a good weight, so I’m not that worried. just frustrated that he won’t eat. if anyone has any advice, I would appreciate it.

Male GTPs will go off feed regularly during breeding season. So long as he is not dropping weight and is still normal in all other ways I wouldn’t worry at all. I have had several of my males go off feed for 4-6 months without a problem at all.

Just offer a meal every couple of weeks or so and he’ll surprise you by hammering his meal when he’s ready to start eating again. I would only offer the same type of meals that you fed before he went off feed.

Thanks. I’ve heard that before about them going off food. I just don’t know when breeding season is. It’s just frustrated. He was eating african soft-furred rats before he started playing the role of ghandi. I haven’t tried to feed him for two weeks, so i’m going to give him another week. here’s hoping.

I’m having the same problem with my female aru gtp. She hasn’t eaten since April 2nd a week before I got her. I have tried all strategies on feeding her. I don’t know what to do next. Any suggestions
