2 year old corn fasting?

Hi, my albino corn who weighed 380 g at the beginning of March has not eaten in about a month. She/he skipped two weeks due to shedding. Then had a full, nothing stuck, shed. And refused the last two weeks. I feed her frozen thawed adult mice, thawed in a plastic cup of hot water. I dangle it for her but she has started to be scared by this so then i leave on top of one of her hides over night. I do have live mice available but I'm not sure if that would be the right thing?

Hi I was like you last year
I think you might have a boy
This is breeding season my male hasnít eat for 5 weeks now and heís out and about round his viv
Looking for a lady bless him if only he knew there is a lady above his viv
So donít worry if it goes on over 6 weeks pop him along to the vets
Good luck

Perfedctly normal. Males go on food strike when in heat. They'll also be a lot more active and all around the tank

Ok that makes sense. But how long should I wait before getting worried? He just shed again and still refused this evening. He had lost some weight when I weighed him last. Also, I had planned on upgrading him and picking up my birthday snake next week. Is this a bad idea?
