If it just arrived from shipping, that is probably the reason it regurged. I always wait a full week before feeding any new animal.

From here, I would wait at least two weeks and then feed again. When you feed again, offer a small food item. When snakes regurge it is hell on their digestive tract. It takes awhile for beneficial bacteria to build back up. If he/she looks disinterested in food, wait another week then try again. The animal won't starve. If he/she doesn't go after the food the next time, then leave it in. I have animals that I have had for years that never take food from thongs.
