    Ok I have had my hognose for a year it is about 3 now though. He normally eats 1 adult mouse a week and has done for the year I have had him. Now for 3 weeks he has just turned down food. He hisses and strikes at it like I am a predator. I haven't handled him much at all recently do you think I need to start handling him more again to get him used to me?

    That sounds like the most obvious solution. Also check temps. I know my corn will just use defensive strikes if his temps are too low.

    It may be a case of the winter blues too. Some snakes go off feed for the winter. Watch his weight and activity level.

    Can you tell us about his set up?

    Our male pythons (GTPs and Ball) have all started to go off their food. They'll his and strike at it, mostly to knock it away, but they're not eating.
    Your hognose might just be going on his winter fast.
