We bought a cornsnake this past july so we haven't had it long. We bought it from a reptile store and the snake is between 2 and 3 years old, so the pet store said. He's between 3 and 4 feet long. Hes been shedding fine and really active, but he hasn't eaten in 5 weeks. The pet store told us he only eats once a week, so we fed him every week. I know its winter time and all but how do we know that, thats the reason he stopped eating. Everytime we offer him a dead mouse he gets scared and moves away from it, and sometimes buries himself. Is 5 weeks normal not to eat for him, or should we be worried. I can't tell if hes lost at weight. There isn't any local vets around me that deal with snakes and I didn't want to drive an hour and a half away for them to tell me everything is fine, so i just wanted to see if someone else could help. Thanks, Sarah.
