Good idea, try not to peek and leave the room in darkness.

If it isn't eaten by tomorrow morning take it out cos it'll be teeming with bacteria... and it won't smell too pleasant either :p

Have you tried dangling it close to your snakes nose and allowing it to strike at it my 2 snakes have not had any problems with dangled mice everytime they take me by surprise and I jump

last 2 posts... seeing as you are fairly new... this snake has had a few problems feeding.. so the dangling and hoping it strikes has already been tried :D

leave him/her in darkness... and leave overnight :D

goodluck m8

peace

I agree try leaving overnight if that doesn't work don't worry as snakes do usually have periods of not eating. If he doesn't have it overnight wait till next weekend you never know he might be getting ready to shed.
