first of all NEVER house a male and female together. at 3 feet the males and because sexually active (he may be and may not be) and will "court" the female. forcing her to breed. get them separate cages ASAP. and then try and feed. if they still have not feed try live. if they still have not eaten. get a frozen and feed them at night and leave it in there all night long and hopefully it ill be gone in the morning. I had a boa that would NOT eat infront of me or if i was even in the same room as him he was a vary strange boa.

as for not eating. it could be a a few things. I have a female motley boa that only eats every 3-5 weeks and she is still a babe. and i hate it. i she will be small when she grow up if she keeps this up :-(

how long have they been with you? it could be new home, new smell kind of thing.

just trying leaving a frozen mouse in there over night with her.
