I have a baby sand boa that's about 8" long. In a 10gal tank under a red light 24hrs with a steady temp of 90 on the hot side and 80 on the cool with a hiding spot that extends corner to corner almost diagonally.
The problem is that she refuses frozen and I've tried leaving her in a zip-lock container over night with thawed pinkies to no avail. The only pet store I know of to get pinkies only has them available MAYBE once every month or two, so it very hard to get them weekly. It's not worth the time, money and hassle to breed mice for one snake. If worst comes to worst though I may breed.
Does anyone have any tips on getting her to eat frozen?
