My smaller female Rubber Boa has not eaten since I got her. I'm not worried yet since it's only been like a month and a half, but I am beginning to feel concerned for her.

I've tried braining the mice and that didn't work, and I've also tried the "hide the mouse" trick with no luck. I've tried feeding her alone and with the other Rubber Boas. The other ones, a male and a large female, are absolute pigs and will eat whatever I give them.

I've also tried different sizes of mice, from small pinkies to large fuzzies (all of which she would be able to eat with no problem), but she just won't take them. She'll smell them for a while and seem interested, but she just won't grab ahold of them.

Any suggestions? Or is it likely that she'll just choose to start eating when she feels like it?
