Are these babies? (I assume so because you are trying pinky mice / hamsters).

I produced 2 CB E. muelleri this year and have also had difficulties getting them to eat. One ate 2 pinky mice right off the bat and nothing since (several months). The other was small (runt sized) and has never taken a meal on its own.

Both snakes will readily eat mouse tails / legs with a little encouragement. I have also started a colony of Roborovski's hamsters but they don't seem interested (other sand boas seem to love them (kenyans, russians, etc...).


Best of luck!
