My female royal python hase just had an upgrade in hides from one of the large/flat exo-terra hides, to a wooden flexi thing. Normally she'll eat two mice a week, last week she ate one, and yesterday, she didn't eat at all. How long will it take her to get used to it? At the moment, it has quite a high curve in it so she can climb, however - I'm thinking as she gets quite a lot of light in the front - she may not feel secure. Should I make it as similar to the last hide that she had as possible?

Is it too big for her, royals like most snakes like a hide that they can squeeze into. They like to feel the hide all around themselves.

Even though they are inside out of the way, the extra space above may be unsettling her, this could be the reason why she has stopped feeding.

But as it's a royal it could be anything.
