Vet said she looked healthy, just thin. Wasn't worried at all. Advised to turn the temp up to a minimum of 32 degree's and add a UV light and try feeding in a month or so.

Will probably just be a stunted/small python for ever. Is still active and colouring looks fine, so nothing to worry about apparently.

What vet did you go to ?
Considering pythons do not need UV I question the suggestion to give UV.
I agree with the increase in temp.
I would also suggest if you can give the snake a fresh killed rat, I know of another member that had to feed fresh killed for a while before the snake would take defrosted.

Wattle Grove. I know there is a whole debate about whether UV is good or even needed for snakes, but that's what they recommend, that's what i'll try.
