      Hi John.  Ball Pythons can be difficult eaters.  If you can find them, try him on frozen pinky or fuzzy rats instead of mice.  Sometimes picky snakes

        Hi John.  Ball Pythons can be difficult eaters.  If you can find them, try him on frozen pinky or fuzzy rats instead of mice.  Sometimes picky snakes prefer rats over mice.  Also, try thawing his meals in some luke warm water before feeding him.  Ball Pythons have heat pits on the side of their face that detect warmth and he may prefer his meals warmer.  Also, is he about to shed?  Sometimes snakes won't eat right before shedding.  Hope these tips help.  Good luck!
