Snakes require proper temperatures for digestion; if the enclosure is too cold, they may refuse to eat.
Changes in environment, handling, or the presence of predators (including other pets) can stress snakes, leading to appetite loss.
Snakes need appropriate humidity levels for shedding and digestion; improper levels may deter feeding.
Health issues, infections, or internal parasites can cause a loss of appetite in snakes.
Offering food too frequently or infrequently might affect a snake's willingness to eat.
Snakes often refuse food before shedding. Monitor for other signs of shedding, like dull skin and cloudy eyes.
Constipation, impaction, or other digestive problems may hinder a snake's appetite.
