The size of your container sounds fine. Is it covered on most sides or is it see thru? I find babies need their privacy or they stress...at least a lot do. They can also go a very, very long time without eating so I wouldn't stress that it doesn't want to eat yet. If you've tried that many food items in only a week, you're trying too often. Give it a week before you try again. If it refuses, wait another week. I've had baby amazons go literally months without taking a single meal and then finally eat. They were thin, but otherwise fine. Both pythons and boas are slower metabolizing animals and they can go longer in between feedings. Even my neonates of either species are fed no more often than weekly...usually every 10 days or I don't get a decent feeding response.
