Ok what you need to do is make sure it has proper everything, temp humidity etc. 85 seems high to me. Make sure your snake isn't too stressed. Make sutre it has a hid area this comes in the form of a live plant fake plant terracota pot what ever.

Leave him alone for a couple of days then at night take some tweezers or something. And with a HOT pinky dangle it infront of his face. For mine the temp is most important if not hot no amount of teasing makes him eat.

Oh yeah! something I've had work with some snakes is dipping the prey in water yet still keeping the temp of the prey up. I know that sounds odd but it has worked with the occasional cal king if your snake refuses to eat might give that a try.

Another thing to look at is size of prey for the first few feeds the girth of the mouse should be no bigger than than girth of your animal at largest point.

Also don't let yourself get too stressed.
