As some of you know my wife (Dee) picked up a pair of Rosie Boas about 2 months ago. We have 1 eating great, the other one will not touch anything. Both are in identical setups. 10 gal tank paper substrates, uth, hides on both ends no water or light. Cool end 82 hot end 91. Have been trying to feed pinky mice every 10 days. They're. Both juveniles don't know much else about them. Is there anything else we can try or just keep doing what we've been doing? On a side note it has only lost 12 grams in the time we've had them. Thanks for any help

are the pinkys live ? it may be worth trying the non feeder on live until you get it eating regular!! when I was keeping the Mexican rosys I found starting them off on live got them feeding quicker and i did not mind the waiting time to shift them on to dead food.

Yes there live. I've tried braining I've tried puring them in paper bags still nothing. I had one in the mid 90s but never had a problem. From what I get from them net is they are notorious fussy eaters.
