S.W Carpet Python not eating
« on: July 08, 2015, 09:23:22 PM »
Hi everyone,

I'm sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place, I'm new to the forums and and seeking some advice that i can't find anywhere else.
I have a S.W carpet Python that is currently not eating. It's just over 18 months old and I've never had a problem feeding him until now. He's been happily eating Hoppers but stopped roughly 4 weeks ago. I have him set up in a tank of appropriate size and have all the usual equipment. The thing which concerns me is that i still have the heat lamp on the same amount it was in summer (from 8AM to 6PM). I'm not a hugely experienced keeper but am seeking the right advice so i can provide the best care for my snake.

Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Your night time temps will be lower. It will trigger it to stop feeding.
Nothing wrong with that. He'll start feeding again September.

Great thanks so much for your help. It had been really worrying me! Do i need to adjust the amount of time his light is on through the colder months or just leave it on 8am-6pm?>
