I agree with Helen, keep an eye on his weight. A decent digital scale is a great idea, I've had one for many years, they come in so handy. You just weigh the bag or box you'll put him in (that fits on the scale), then subtract that weight of the container when you weigh it with him enclosed. It's not very stressful for the snake either.

Ok, the White Lip has been treated. I also spoke to the person that got the female(The dealer had a pair). His ate a rat pup finally so I’m gonna try that tonight and I’ll let you all know how it goes.

Ok so it was a no go on the rat pup. I tried enticing him with it as well as just leaving it in overnight with the enclosure covered. I was talking to the store owner the other day and he had the male and female in the same enclosure and thinks the male might still be in breeding mode? I know females will stop eating once gravid but do males stop eating when they think it’s breeding season? He has also been on his own for over a month now, I would think that he would be out of that mind frame.

It's not unusual for males to go off food during breeding season, and there doesn't have to be a female around. I thought this typically happened over the winter though.

In the wild these guys are semi-arboreal, so you may also try day-old chicks as feeders.
