Strange Eating Habits

Discussion in 'Rosy Boas & Sand Boas' started by Artificialno.12, Apr 10, 2016.

  1. I have a relatively young male sand boa that I've had since March this year. Two out of three times he's eaten he hasn't "attacked" his prey when eating (fed frozen/thawed pinkies). Is this because he knows it's dead or is it a sign for something else?

    Some snakes just get like that in captivity when they get used to F/T prey not struggling.
    I can't see it having any negative consequences or it being a sign of something other than perhaps laziness.

    As long as he is eating I wouldn't be too concerned. I've had snakes that are agressive eaters and some like you've described, either way is fine.

    Sounds it's being a lazy little worm, lol. I agree with the others, nothing to be concerned about.
