B. schneideri's do take time to switch over to mice, especially if they are under 20cm. Also females take mice more readily than males.

Try scent the pinky with the wet end of a broken gecko tail.

Well this is my experience. Males are usually smaller anyway.

You may have tried this but try place a pinky on the sand near the tail. Then pinch the snake tail gently with tongs, "as if" a mouse were biting at it. This can sometimes get a feeding response.

Also a defensive strike can be good because once the taste of mouse is in the mouth, the snake will often eat.

If that if, very stressful, irritable, grrrrrrrrrrr.
My case, I think I have to be more patient, my problem that I am very obsessive in the food, but it is and I will be more patient with all my animals, and certainly do better.
