Finally after about nine month my male sand boa ate a small live mouse. It was actually my mistake. I was going to feed a smooth scaled sand boa in the next tank and dropped the mouse in the wrong tank. Well I thought I'll get the mouse out later. To my great surprise when I came back about ten minutes later the mouse was dead with the Saharan swallowing it. Wonderful. There is something about feeding Saharans that I don't understand. Why are they such reluctant feeders? Wrong food, temperature too shy, stressed out? After the snake swallowed the mouse it spent about ten minutes nosing the surface of the aspen shavings and then burrowed under.
