Some of my corns don't eat right after a shed. I find them sitting in their water bowls, so leave them alone for a couple days. Sometimes I don't even offer them food until the next scheduled feeding day for all the corns. My vet once told me it's a good idea to skip a feeding, as it really triggers the hunting/feeding response in most snakes.

I thought that might the reason he has got a female in the viv on top of his
She is a good looker
How long could he be love struck?
Another thing is he is very restless heís out and about
Early in the day and he is going round his viv as if heís looking for something

As stated above, he's a little young, but my males will never eat in the spring. They're just up, down, in and out all day and all night because it's breeding season. Usually about 6-8 weeks before they will eat. Just thaw one less mouse and if he won't eat it, give it to the other snake instead. It takes FOREVER for a corn snake to starve so please don't worry.
