King Snake not eating
I have a approx. 2 year old Mexican Black king snake i recently got. when i got him he was just starting the shedding process so i did not feed him. the breeder he came from fed him live hopper mice so when his shedding was done i figured he would be hungry, so i gave him a live hopper mouse and he bolted after it and killed, but did not eat it. just let it lay dead. I know snakes pretty well and i see no signs of him being sick or anything, and his enclosure is fine, so what could be the problem?
    please help.

This is certainly odd, did you ever find out what might have caused this, did he start eating again?

snakes don't always like to eat right after they shed because their skin is still very soft. also many snakes will go for months without eating as long as his weight stays about the same he should be fine. if you are still worried you should take him to a vet. if he does this again try to feed him but if he doesnt eat don't get to worried.
