Default Queenies new record

I made a post a while ago mentioning that queenie had actually eaten something.....since then she has continued her hunger strike. If I take her one meal as a blip then she has now gone 13 months without food. She's in good condition, happy to be handled, regularly seen going to her water bowl for a drink but the the second you put food in for her she heads straight for the nearest hide. There is a few seconds of interest whilst I warm the food with a hair dryer, I think mainly to do with the scent being blown into her viv. After that though she just doesn't care. My son's corn snake looks on in disgust at her refusal and wishes she was big enough for an extra dinner but she isn't. Alice on the other hand is quite happy to eat anything that's going ( at 9foot and as thick as my upper arm there's not much she won't eat. ). Oh well, guess she will eat when she's ready.....picky little madam.
