to all you snake mamas ...whats the longest you went without feeding ur snake?

today was suppose to be feeding day for our snake and the shop that we get mice are out of live mice cause the breeder got behind. they hope to get some in early next week. we been feeding her every 2 weeks, we tried weekly for a while and every other week she just killed the mouse and left it. the shops in the nearby town only sell frozen mice for feeders and my snake will not eat frozen or prekilled mice. she may have to go another 3 or 4 days without eating...i just know she is gonna be bitchy. we feed her at the same time every 2wks, so today at noon she was ready to be takin to her feeder cage, i just tried to change her water bowl and she tried to strike me...cause normally she would of been fed by now.
thought about sending a friend into one of the other shops and him saying he needs one for a pet, but not sure yet

  • We fed our regularly every other week but a few days didnt make a difference to them. I would say if your snake is that cranky now, go ahead and find it some food...another few days and you may have a lot more trouble getting her to the feeding tank to eat.

  • It all depends on the size of your snake and how active it is.  Larger snakes can go longer between feeds and active snakes need feeding more frequently.
