I have a young adult Cereastes that has stopped eating mice of any size unless you hold the mouse with forceps and piss it off to get it to strike it. Then it'll eat it later. This has been happening for the last 2 months. I don't like stressing my animals.

Do I wait a full month before offering live mouse or offer a frozen dinner next time?

Maybe the smell of rotting flesh is what she was excited about or pheromones in the venom sent some appeteaser signals?

Thanks.
