    How long are you leaving him in the container with the food and how often are you checking him? Some snakes are shy eaters, I have some snakes I have never seen eat. I have a couple hatchlings that had to stay over night in the feeding tub to eat.

    If he ate a frozen thawed last week I would keep him on it.

    What are the temps like in his enclosure, one big factor for getting them to eat is proper temps.
