So my last post about this hognose snake was asking how many times a week I should feed it. I realized I need to back track and figure out why she is not eating. I have had her for 1 week and 1 day. I have tried to feed her twice. Both times I took all her decoration out of her tank and place the feeder on a solid surface so it doesn't get any bedding stuck to it. Then I carefully dig out the snake and dangle the mouse in front of her. The first time she showed no interest and I left it in the tank overnight but she didn't eat it. I tried again today this time she got very huffy and started hissing and false striking at the mouse when I dangled it. I left it in there again but she buried herself and seems to have no interest. I maybe just overly concerned since this is my first snake and I have only had her for a little more than a week. Her warm side of the tank is set to 93 F using a thermometer and a heat mat so it doesn't drop below 89 or get above 94. She has plenty of substrate to burrow in (maybe a bit too much because I can never find her) she comes out by herself every once and a while though spends most of her time buried. She has a shallow water dish which is large enough so if she wants to soak she can. She also has a 5. uvb bulb providing a day/ night cycle. The next time I try should I just leave it in there and not dig her out to show her it's there? The breeders said she was eating unscented frozen thawed pinkies. They told me to try Friday and leave it in the tank if she didn't show interest. Then try again a couple days later if she didn't eat. If she doesn't eat by tomorrow I am going to ask them for advice. My only question is do I have a reason to be worried or is this normal for a new hognose snake? How long should I wait before I consider assist feeding?
