Hi Intherough

Don't panic, it sounds like he's just shedding his skin... that would put him off his food, and the rubbing and yawning are probably him just trying to get the skin to start coming off.

If he's not already finished shedding by the time you read this you should raise the humidity in the viv a little by spraying of you have a spray, or just dipping your fingers in the water and 'flicking' some in and around the viv (not on the electrics or your snake though!)

Then just be patient and he should be done soon, and then you'll probably find he'll eat!
