Default Anaconda...6 long months

So Bronson, my male Green Anaconda, decided he'd go on hunger strike 6 long months ago, not been worried at any point, he's stayed in good condition with losing next to no weight.

After popping a Guinea Pig in his viv every 4 weeks and him turning his nose up at it, tonight I gave him his meal and he decided to coil and have a taste, as of yet he's still not eaten it but hopefully I'll have some good news in the next 20 minutes.

Cheers mate, still looking good, as you'll know it's all about patience and not worrying.

Once you get used to Anaconda's you learn that they can be a pain in the arse at times, I suppose you just get used to it.

He's in good condition so wasn't worried, I knew he'd feed sooner or later and my female Burm doesn't look to happy now that she has to wait another 24hrs for her meal.

Congrats! It's always a nice feeling when they get something down them after a break.
