Unfortunately I can't see your picture. I'm not sure about the skin thing, but it would make sense for them to lose some elasticity in their skin like people do as they get older.

As for eating, you could try a smaller meal, heated extra hot and brained. Have you palpated her for eggs? Has she ever laid for you?

Just an update, Elizabeth Striker died last week. He was 29. He shed a week before so was acting pretty normal up till the end. Felt like his time.

Aw, I'm sorry to hear that. 29 is definitely very old for a corn, so it sounds like he had a great life with you!

Oh, I'm really sorry to hear that. It's so hard to lose a snake, particularly the ones who have been with us for so many years. I will be in bits when Galahad's time is finally up.

Oh, I'm sorry for your loss. It definitely sounds like his time had come after a good long life with you. I know you're going to miss your snake. It's hard to lose a long-time buddy.
