I've recently acquired a LTC female Viper boa, and as of yet it still has not eaten. It's been about a month since it's eaten, and I've had it in my possession for about three weeks now. I was wondering if anyone has ever tried live goldfish as a sort of kickstart for eating. The guy I bought it from said it was eating well on adult mice, but it has refused them. She's about 22 inches long and still has good body weight.

Here are some photos of her.
