2 yr old female wont eat

My 2 yr old female shed on the first week in July. She ate soon afterword and has not eaten since. It has been about 4 weeks and she has never gone this long without eating. I have offered her food every 5-7 days throughout this period. Could something be wrong or is this normal? Thanks for your help.

Im having the same problem with my 2 yr old male candy cane except its going on 7 weeks for him. I usually feed frozen thawed but, Im gonna try to feed a small live mouse, probley hopper size. I had a male go off food for 3 months before finally takig a live mouse. Maybe you could try live??

Could she be ovulating? She's old enough, although it's not as common for the females to go off food at breeding time (and it's a little late for it), it can happen. If she seems healthy and active, I'd just wait and try feeding her every week or two, no more often than that.
