My ball likes to spend half of his time in the water bowl, But these last few days he seems to have gas because i keep hearing bubbling in the tub! lol and he doesn't even blush! But seriously, He hasn't eaten on a regular basis since last summer. Sometimes he eats a little, sometimes not at all and once he engorged himself over the last 8 months or so. I feed large mice for I have many carnivous reptiles and if one will not eat, i can always offer it to another. The most my ball has eaten is 3 large mice in one sitting while many times he shys away from a mouse or other times will just take one. He has eaten rats in the past but I have stopped feeding them because he shys away so much and the rats can do damage. My ball will not take PK or even unconcious prey. It has to move but at the same time there cannot be any movement outside of the cage or else he will be distracted. The set up and temps are where they should be. I've had him for a long time, but the gas issue occurs seldomly.
