Well he just finished swallowing his first meal in over a month (xmas eve was the last time he ate). I am so happy that I had to tell someone. He has been through so much since December, I think he's finally on the road to recovery. He had a mite infestation, then shortly after, a respitory infection which then caused mouth rot. Mites gone, he's breathing normally now, and there are no signs of the mouth rot. I was THIS close to taking him to the local animal hospital, but I got some very good advice from my brother-in-law's cousin who is studying to be a exotic pet vet. I was afraid he would need antibiotics and stuff. But he is starting to look like the shape he was in before the infestations started. Correct me if i'm wrong but i'm guessing he's not very stressed anymore due to the fact he ate? I have been trying (in vain) to feed him over the course of the last month..he was just not interested in the mice. Didn't even want to look at it, it seemed. I bought a frozen adult mouse the other day, but again nothing. Then I realized that there was still shed skin over his head and eyes..so I helped him out with that yesterday. Tonight I got home from school and I had a feeling that he might eat tonight. So I thawed out the mouse in really hot water, and placed it close to his hide and before it was even touching the ground he peaked his head out the opening; And before I knew it, he had it in his mouth. The difference could also be because I'm feeding at night time, as opposed to day time. At any rate this is a step in the right direction.
