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.

not a snake owner and have no experience but can't they eat raw chicken or something until you can get the live or frozen rodents??

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!!

that is AWESOME!

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

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:

I expect nothing. I fear no one. I am free.
Excuse my bad and rusty english but i did not have your luck to be born or to live in a country where the main language is english.
P.S I am not rude, i just hate stupidity and act accordingly.

the pinkies have to be producing a bit of heat coz they would not take cold food
