Is your ATB a wild-caught or captive born and bred (not captive HATCHED)? If its not CBB, they will often have problems feeding. Also, what size rodent are you attempting to feed (sometimes if its too big, they won't eat it)? Are you trying to feed live or dead prey (live can scare them sometimes, but some will only start out on live.) I wouldn't cover the cage all the way, this can lead to stagnant air flow and health problems would follow (repsiratory infection, fungal growth). I would just a small, taller rubbermaid and use that as a tank ( I got mine @ Walmart for like $3, a perfect cage, just drill or solder air holes in the side-not too many though-6-8 holes in rows of 2). I'm not trying to sound like a know-it-all, just tryin to help! If you want more info and more experineced tree boa keepers, go check out Corallus.com, by far the best on-line resource for tree boas.
