    Re: How Long Can My Snake Go Without Eating?

    They can go a long time without eating.. Its not really good for them, but they can do it.

    Now that we have had a poop, give your snake a few more days, then try feeding again. Glad you got the basking spot up, it seems to be moving things along.

    Re: How Long Can My Snake Go Without Eating?

    Six weeks without eating to a snake is nothing! Many species fast for up to a year!
    The problem was most likely the temps. You fooled the snake into thinking that winter was coming and that it had to keep its gut empty to brumate. When the temps are too low they can't digest their food and going into brumation with food in the gut would kill them.
    Now that you have the temps back up it should resume feeding.
