Garter snakes have worked for me jump starting stubborn greens. I had one eating snakes before I could get it turned over to chicken parts. For some reason it was holding off on the day old chicks, but it would eat grocery store chicken parts (gizzards seemed to do well).

Another option (which I am not a huge fan of) is fish. And I don't think you will get the results you would get from birds or snakes...or even lizards..but it is worth a shot.

And just a little side note. Green Frogs and Bullfrogs would be Lithobates, not Rana.

Just for fun, this green ate its first meal after 7 months of life...and that meal was a garter snake. I tried many other things first. Now it is big and healthy and never refuses huge rats.
