CB's are hard to find in this species. My WC male is doing great but his intended mate didn't fare so well. I think it was obviously poor handling, she had a massive infection. :(. I'm looking to buy a CB female but I never seem to have the cash when they're available. Anyone who knows a good source feel free to give me a heads up... well, wait a few weeks, I'm broke on account of sandboas.
At any rate, to answer Zack's questions, I keep mine in a cage a little bigger than a 10, it's got a divider that slides in. C.C's hook like greased kittens. He eats mice, he used to eat adults, but now he just likes fuzzies. I generally try to feed him once a week, but he's been a bit spotty lately. They really really like sand as a substrate, they have special adaptations to nestle in it and move across it. They don't burrow, per se, but rock themselves into the sand. They sidewind, too. And when they are annoyed they saw-scale instead of hiss. Pretty cool. Mine is actually curious and will crawl right up to investigate me. He's usually slow to strike but he will if pushed. The actually care is very very easy as long as they're healthy and you have a safe way to clean out the cage.
