Most of those CH BPs at Petco or Petsmart will eat like gangbusters given tight hides, a nice temp range and proper humidity. I've tried about 10 or so over the years, all did very well once setup to their liking. I'm sure some will not, but my feeling is most will.

Too dry of conditions mean baby BPs not feeding. Alot of beginners do just that. Alot of Petcos do just that.

Rosyboas, as adults, can be more seasonal feeders, meaning they may refuse food for parts of the year and eat with gusto in others. No problem. Usually this describes males in proximity to females. Females tend to feed more consistently. In any case, as long as cage conditions are good, rosies will eat as much as they need to. Babies eat like crazy and should be fed like crazy.
