How is the cage set up? Do they have adequate hides and the proper temperature? Also, how much have you been handling them? Most people recommend waiting a week after bringing a new snake home before you handle it. Although Dumerils Boas are traditionally very mellow snakes, if they're stressed by a new environment, they can be a little nippy as babies. I'd make sure the temperature and humidity are good, then leave it alone at least a few days. Also, I'm not sure if you're housing them together or separately, but be sure to separate them when you feed them. Once you do get him eating, you can gradually start handling him for short periods. The big thing is, you don't want to have him out long enough he gets stressed. Anyway, I'm about to leave for work, but I hope this helps out. Good luck, and I'm sure he'll mellow out in time.
