:i've got a two year old kenyan that ate well until I switched to thawed mice. i've tried lizard scenting and braining, but he won't eat. any suggestions?

Has he eaten any of the frozen/thawed mice you have offered?
I feed my ksb's f/t mice with forceps(cheap plastic ones meant for feeding fish). Most the time all I have to do is put the mouse in front of them and they will strike and take it, but sometimes I have to lightly tap them on the nose with it. And if all else fails and you get really worried you could always offer a live mouse to get something in him.. but trick him and offer a live pinky and as soon as he has slowed it offer a f/t pinky.. that is how I got mine switched.
