Hi! I think if you've only had it 4 days and you've already tried feeding it all those things then you have not given it enought time to adjust. Try going at least a few days without bothering it at all. Leave it completely alone. Then try offering it a frozen thawed mouse (whatever size is appropriate for it) and poke some holes in its head and body with a pin. I just had to do that today for a yearling corn I bought at a reptile show. In the two weeks I've had him I offered him a frozen thawed hopper on two different occasions and he showed no interest. Today I offered him a third one and again, no interest. So I took out the mouse and poked holes in it with a pin. Only a little blood came out, but that was enough to do the trick. He ate it right down then! Good luck!
