Although I don't currently keep rubber boas, when I did some were finicky eaters sometimes. One male I had would only eat maybe once or twice a year, and only if I set up a little mouse "nest" complete with pinks. He would eat the whole or most of the litter and then not accept another meal until the following season. Others I had were chow hounds and would accept food right from forceps.
Always give your rubber boas a long cold hibernation period. I think they need it in order to do well. Also, I never kept mine on heat, like I did with rosys. I just kept them at room temp and usually in the coolest spot (near the floor). I kept the rubbers for 10+ years. They were always very interesting and made great captives.
