    Dig up some small earthworm and offer them, you will probably get an immediate response. I think once the snake gets the worm more toward the back of the jaw it will be able to finish eating.

    I've got it wax worms it doesn't have any other injury except the jaw. The mouth got cut a bit in the procedure it's jaw is a bit twisted in and to the side I've given hlm slight water soak as he is too quick to spring out of that but it's tongue flickers back and forth after doing so he's mobile but I haven't seen seen it eat yet so I'm a bit worried

    I'm afraid to move his mouth thus hurting it more it's so tiny compared to me it's about maybe 10 inches long I can't open its mouth or touch it jaw without drawing small traces of blood my the skin cut during the process but it's seems to be a fighter it's very mobile still and active it moves around and find it in different spots in the cage daily

    A small piece of worm can be gently stuffed in with a tooth pick. There might be some blood but the snake needs to eat at some point. Any chance you have a reptile Vet. that would be willing to look at it? Is there a reptile rehab group near you.
