What are his temperatures and humidity set at? I hate to say it, but you may have to try live for a while. Since they're just fuzzies, they won't hurt him, so don't worry. We always recommend feeding frozen, but sand boas can be just as picky as ball pythons and it's really annoying. If that doesn't work, take a pair of tongs and use a frozen pinky to tickle the side of his neck with. Sand boas have receptors in their neck that make them strike automatically when they're touched. It usually works best RIGHT on side of their mouths.
