Hi All.

I have an adult female corn snake, about six years old, who has gone off food. She has just shed her skin, I know that they don't eat before then when the are in the milky stage, but that was a week ago and she hasn't feed for about 1 and a half months.
Usually I would feed her 1 adult mouse every two weeks, she hasn't lost too much weight but how long is this likely to go on for?

Would warming up the mouse before I put her in the feeding box a good idea?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

yeah you should always warm up food before offering to at least room tempreture, what are her viv hot and cold temps, you should if possible start weighing her to check for any significant weight loss, have you tried leaving food overnight,? not trying to worry you it is qute normal for snakes to fast every once in a while! keep us updated
