No kidding! The rubber boa and hognose are the only two snakes I have ever owned. The rubber boa certainly was not a strong feeder either. I don't know what I'd do if I had a snake that actually ate every time I fed him. That's such a weird concept to me! My hognose has eaten a grand total of four pinky mice in three months I've had him. My rubber boa had a similar track record (though he was much larger) until I lost him (despite a couple trips to the vet and twice-weekly injections) to an infection. Man, he was a cool snake though. So friendly.

:Compared to my rubber boa. He's only eaten once in his life and that is last September. This snake is a pain to try to feed. The hognose is a hog compared to the rubber boa

:::I would laugh, if I were not crying---mine "wont't eat". Tried the full list of suggestions, spent a couple hundred dollars in vet visits, talked with a lot of snake experts. It may be time for someone to open the first ever "anorexia" center for hognoses.
