I would leave the small perch in place, they are easier to hang on to when holding a good size meal.

I would continue to try feeding a pink or fuzzy depending on the size of the snake. Chick down on the nose usually works for kids and getting males to break fasts. I (& several others) have had good luck with a strip of raw chicken breast(warmed up) as a last resort. Lizards and frogs can be used for scenting or even feeding if ness.but I would not use a live anole. Since this little one has eaten a fuz/hopper for you once, it shouldn't be hard to repeat. Try different techniques, individual snakes differ as to the approach that works for them. Call the breeder for help esp. if they are local. Good luck.
