I have a new pair (1.1.0) of sub adult Sistrurus miliarius which I have had for 5 weeks. At this point I have been unable to get them to accept food or even strike at food. I'll try and keep this short:

- I was told they are CB and told that they ate pinkies two weeks before I received them (not sure i believe either of these statements at this point)
- I have tried live and F/T tease feeding pinkies
- I've tried scenting Pinkies with anoles and even tried offering small anoles
- I've tried split-braining pinkies and leaving in small deli cup overnight
- I've tried leaving small pinkies in their cage overnight
- They are on aspen with lots of hiding spots, a large shallow water dish, and appropriate temperatures.

I know they can go a while without food, but at this point they are beginning to look thin.

Any advice would be very appreciated!
