It's normal. Snakes can go a long long time without food. You'd be surprised. Just make sure he's got plenty of fresh water and keep trying. If he starts losing weight, then you have cause to worry, but until then, he's fine.

Blame it on breeding season!! During breeding season the boys stop eating so they can find a girl....Hmmm, I never stopped eating... maybe that's why!!!
