 New Albino Rosy Boa issue

Hello everyone, so recently I acquired a Whitewater Albino Rosy Boa from the Reptile Super Show in Pomona, California. I got her about 2 weeks ago, and she hasn’t accepted any live pinky yet. That’s what the breeder said they were feeding on, which is the standard anyway. So what might it be? The warm side of the cage is 88-92 degrees Fahrenheit and the cool side in the 70’s. She has a hide and substrate and everything else are good. I offer her food once a week, so twice so far and still nothing, she just acknowledges somethings there, but never eats it.

Thanks for the help

she may still be a little stressed. try leaving the pinky in there for a little bit and then check. sometimes it just takes a while for them to accept it.

Sometimes they get very stressed when moved from one place to another.I put any of my new snakes in a different room where there is no movement at all.Within 2 or 3 weeks they have eaten.
