Hi Ricky,
I have not actually had to feed any Trimorphodon, but you might try the tease feeding method with a new born pinky. I have used this for lots of reluctant ratsnakes. You have to hold the snake in your hand and give them maybe an inch of neck movement. I then harass them with a pinky until they strike it. The key is getting them to hold on to it..once that happens I freeze all my movements and hopefully the snake will go ahead and eat the pinky. It may take several trys and if the Trimorphodon just strike and don't latch on to the pinky, then this technique will probably not work. Good Luck!
