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.

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?

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:

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