Check your temps, first. Winter in NY can easily throw off a snakes feeding pattern. I'm not very familiar with them; but I think they brumate...if so, and you're sure he's healthy, put him down for 6 weeks or so.

they do brumate, although most people don't bother with letting them. I believe with texans, you want to raise the temp a little bit threw winter.

Agreed...but, having fought the battle with other species, sometimes (depending on one's setup) it's easier to just let it happen once they're not eating.

Utta's indigos are gorgeous, I wish we could have brought them with us to CA. Such amazing and cool snakes, even if they are, um, messy.


ps - I'm moving this thread to the snake discussion forums

I love my indigo's. They're really amazing snakes.

I hope you can get yours to eat.
