HELP, I bought a adult (not positive on exact ago) Guyana boa at a rep show, have had her 5 month now ands she has no feeding response! NONE, she has peed once, has not pooped at all, I have offered her a adult mouse, live and frozen same with rats she has absolutely no interest, she has shed once and I had to assist even soaking her to remove eye caps, had her in a 50gallon tank for 3 months with correct lighting heat and moisture, I have moved her to a 70 quart rack she seems to keep moisture better here but still no feeding response, when I purchased her I was told she had lived in a children's museum of some sort, she is not head shy she handles easy and gives me no worries about being aggressive at all, I have no idea when the last time she ate was, I have tried feeding her in separate containers, still nothing I am at a loss here and truly need some advice on what next! All comments are appreciated thanks in advance!

Try feeding in her enclosure instead of a seperate container.

Can you share a pic of her set up and also please include what the temps are on both the hot and cold side.  I s it belly heat, overhead or back heat? How much does she weigh and what size prey are you offering? How are you offering her the food? From tongs, heated up, at room temp., etc?

Her current loose skin could be due to an upcoming shed. Does she appear dull or have cloudy /blue eyes?
