My new Gopher/Bull snake hasn't eaten or eliminated in the 3 weeks I have had it. I have tried everything. The Herp shop said it was a difficult eater, so I took it back to them to watch for a week and see if they can get it to eat. Worst case scenario is I trade it for another snake - though they don't have any more Gophers . I am off to Texas for a week of new job training, so we will see what happens. I am more concerned about it not pooping more than it not eating, as they told me it ate 2 days before I bought it. Have a nice weekend everyone! I will keep you updated.
