I have a Female Speckled Kingsnake roughly three years old. She's a terrific eater, but began refusing food last Fall, and I put her in brumation for 3 months. When I took her out of brumation in February, she began feeding again regularly. But she's refused food the last two times offered, last week and this week.
I suspect this has something to do with her breeding cycle. Kingsnakes reportedly mate mid-March (Florida) to June in the wild. I just can't find much information on females refusing to eat during the breeding period. I DO NOT plan to breed her. Has this been observed by other people who keep females, breeding or otherwise? - Thanks
