View Full Version : rosy boa not eating

Hi, I'm new to the forum looking to get a little advice about my rosy boa. I have had him for about 6 months now and he has yet to eat a single pinky! He is still very active, and I have an under tank heater, aspen substrate, a water bowl, hiding places, and I turn on a heat lamp for a few hours during the day. I have tried frozen and live pinkys, neither of which he is interested in. He hasn't shed his skin or passed feces in months but looks healthy. I knew that they can go a few months when they are "hibernating" or looking for a mate, but I wasn't sure how long they could go. I would like to avoid force feeding and was wondering if there was something else I could try. If anyone has any suggestions, I would really appreciate it, thank you! My name is Laura, btw.

Hi Laura..you will probably get a great deal of help if you post this down in the boa discussion forum...I can't help b/c I"m not a snake keeper
