I am getting so sick of my Boiga dendrophila not eating. It has been over 2 months since its arrival and still, not even close to a meal. He drinks water, plenty. He comes out every night cycle like clockwork, but never resopnds to any kind of food. He is under 4 ft. in a 55 gallon tank with 4 large branches, lots of fake foliage cover, I mean a lot, and both a hide on the ground and a hide in the tree he never uses at all. His temps are 92*F during the day and about 80 - 85*F at night. What can I do? Does anyone have experience force feeding? It is rediculous at this point. Also, I treated his for parasites even though his fecal came back negative because it was about the only thing left I could think of that would cause him not to eat. I have tried feeder fish, frozen/thawed chicks, live chicks, frozen/thawed mice, and live mice. Nothing. He is looking terribly skinny and I dont want it to come down to his death. Any suggestions? Please help, I can't take this anymore. Attached is a current picture of his enclosure, you can see the ground hide just behind the one propped up like a tree trunk. You can also see him underneath a bunch of foliage in the middle.
