I work in a pet store now, no boo's please we do our best to be responsible with our reptile sales and care, and I see a ton of people who buy mice for larger boids also. I actually learned of this boa from work. The guy called to see if we wnted the snake at the store. My store has a policy not to buy reptiles from the general public, so my manager gave him my number and said I may be able to help him.

I'll give the mice a try and hopefull that will turn the trick!

Thanks,
Rick

:I would also attempt to feed an adult f/t mouse and see if he'll take that. I know that his size would lead you to assume he's used to eating rats, but while working at a pet shop years ago I had quite a few people come in to purchase 4 or 5 mice for their med.-larger boids claiming that their snake wouldn't eat rats. Of course after informing them of scenting they were able to easily switch them over.
