    It seems like ive fallen prey to a classic case of a baby boa who wont eat. Guess it happens to the best of us eh? ;)

    anyways, i fed him 2 weeks ago on thursday and then went to handle him saturday night and realized he was about to shed. So i left him alone and this past saturday he shed beautifully and in one piece.

    However, i've wasted 3 f/t hoppers on this little b****rd over the past week and i even tried braining one last night but to no avail.

    He's eaten for me twice since ive had him with no problems. I defrost the mouse in cool water and then warm it in hot water for a few minutes before placing both it and the snake in an opaque tupperware container inside his cage overnight. usually by morning the mouse is gone and he's got a nice lump in his belly...but not this time.

    Any ideas??? I'm gonna have to go BACK to the store (45min drive) to get more mice, this joker has run me fresh out!

    Oh and my numbers are as follows:
    Ambient warm side = 85-90F
    Hot spot = ~95F
    cool side = 75-85F
    Humidity = 40-60% RH (never falls below 40%)

    Try rubbing it on some chicken meat.
    Give it some different smells.
