Hi I've kept rosy boas for almost 10 years and successfully bred them twice. My uncle owns one of the offspring from the first clutch, a female. Shes probably 6-8 yrs old now and we have had no problems trying to get her to eat until now, other than regular seasonal stuff. But its now February and she hasn't eaten since early summer of last year! We have never had to force feed a snake before and don't particularly want to but it feels like it might become our last option. She is in decent physical shape not super thin or anything like that she just hasn't been eating, defecating, or shedding. Any help on this subject is greatly appreciated, thank you.
