Back when I was field collecting in the southwest I used to keep Lyre snakes. I never had a problem getting WC lyre snakes to eat FT mice even though everyone else could not. They were insistent that they are lizard feeders and they still wewerre not successful getting them to eat.

What I did was build a rock pile in te cage where they could jam themselves into real tight.. I guess this "jamming" into a tight spot gave them the lacking security they needed. Much like a tight crevice. Then I just laid a FT mouse outside of it and it would be gone in the morning. I did this with several lyre snakes and never had a wc lyre that did not eat mice.
