length is not a factor when it comes to feeding snakes. how big around your snake is will determine how big their food should be. you can take a measuring tape (the sewing kind) and measure the thickest part of your snakes stomach. just get food about the same size. i usually feed my snake live rodents, if you don't want to do that you can get frozen food and heat it up in a microwave. it's best to have a separate area to feed your snake. if you feed them within their tank your snake can become territorial and start to associate the sound of you opening the tank with feeding time... which could raise the chances of your snake striking at you. once you have your snake in a separate tank, just drop the food in, you shouldn't wave the food in front of your snake, they see by temperature, so then can mistake your hand for food. you should find out when wild boas usually eat, some snakes are nocturnal, if yours is then it is best to wait until later in the evening to feed your snake and either cover the feeding tank or turn the lights down low. leave your snake in the feeding tank for about an hour to let them digest.

could be a lot of reasons why your snake isn't eating. snakes are kinda like cactus plants.. they don't need food everyday. it may be best to go to a local store and ask an associate or research online. without knowing more about your snake it's hard to tell exactly why it's not eating.
