not to worry when was her last meal and what did you feed her? sometimes snakes don't need to feed till one month later if it had a large meal before.leave some water in her tank and give her some light.if it gets to cold they get sluggish as their metabolism drops.a little sunlight would be best.
Thnx agen i can sleep tight now!! I havent fed her because she was found in some1s garden and we cant tell but she keeps pooing so it means shes eating something right?? Shes only about 5 weeks ol, she has a heat mat and fresh water so she pretty happy, just gunna make naother thread with some pics of coral and saphire!!!
Wait a minute I am confused...Coral.. the original snake has been found under the bookcase and she has gotten bigger?.......Sapphire the new snake found roaming the streets of England is small and not eating...and this is the snake you are worried about?
I lurked on your thread where you were looking... and had secretly given up hope because it'd been so long (I know nothing about the survival skills of reptiles!!). Ah, if only you could see my smile right now. :D
Shes been resting for to weeeks!! lol, here in england its illegal to feed live creatures! Shes so samll she needs 1 day old mice.. but nowhere sells them.............
Well you can always buy a male and female and breed them.
But i have to ask... what do all snake keepers feed their snakes if live food is not legal? I mean... not all snakes eat prekill. Why not try a local reptile forum and see if someone might sell you some live pinkies?
Someone must breed them around your area.
If not you can order frozen pinkies online and use the exo terra vivicator to make them look alive(it's basicly a dish that vibrates and moves the food around inside it making it look... somewhat alive).
Here it is in action:
