    I have a black Milk that has never missed a meal, even in shed he would eat. He is coming up on three years old and for some reason he has stopped eating. He has been very active where as he is usualy a home body hanging in hi hide. He is on Aspen bedding with temps in the low to mid 80s. Could he be searching for love? Any help would be great .

    Don't worry. A LOT of snakes (especially males) go through a fasting phase as they get older.It is a healthy, natural process. He'll eat again when he's hungry.
    It is not unusual for snakes to go several months without eating. He may be longing for a mate, but when he's ready, he'll eat: mate or not! :)
    Try not to worry.

    Breeding season may indeed be the answer. Do you house any other snakes?
