I strongly suggest feeding sand boas separately. They should never be fed in such a way that you don’t know whether the animal has eaten or not.
I suggest feeding sand boas meals that leave just a small bulge after eating, or no bulge in adults if possible- I prefer to err on the smaller feeder size. Don’t feed subadults and breeding females more often than once weekly, and non-breeding adults and males can be offered food once every other week or so.
Obese sand boas can get very squishy.
