    My green tree python is about 5 months old and about a month ago started passing up food... He/she has ate once in the past month and I didn't think he/she was going to eat at all then. Its really starting to scare me and I was just wondering if anyone could help me out?

    He has also been getting on the floor a lot lately and I can't really get him to drink from his water bowl. Any advice would be great.

    Can you tell us a little bit about your set up? Temps, humidity, enclosure size, substrate? How are you certin he has not been drinking from the water bowl?

    Its an exo-terra 18"x18"x24". I know I should have wood housing and currently in the process of building something. The humidity is always between 70 and 80 percent. I currently have a fogger system and a dripper system. He seems to drink from the dripper... at least I've seen him drink from it but just not his water bowl. He still looks dehydrated and when I mist the tank sometimes he will come right up to the mister and drink from the end of it. I have just been wracking my brain trying to figure out how to help him. good news though. I did get him to eat this morning when I got off work.

    Can you up your misting to more times in the day? I would ditch the fogger, they have been known to shock animals and often malfunction. And truthfully, do little for humidity. Mostly they just look neat.

    And what are your temps?

    I work about 12 hours a day so it would be kinda hard to mist him more. I already mist him 3 to 4 times a day. How could the fogger shock him? I also think the fogger makes a big difference in humidity because with it on there is a 20% increase in humidity in the top and bottom of the tank... I will try to get an automatic mister soon
