I've had a Columbian for three months and he's never skipped a meal.

I added a 11 year-old Dummerils boa about three weeks ago. He ate one week after I got him.

I waited two weeks and gave him another rat. (He had shed, but I waited two days after he completed the shed). He crawled over to the rat, smelled it and moved it around with his head and then crawled away. I left it in his cage all night, but he didn't eat it.

Should I be concerned? His previous owner who had him from a baby said that he eats well.

FYI, he's in a 4'x2' Boamaster with temps ranging from 86F on one end and 80F on the other end.

Thanks,

Scott
