Default Xenopeltis unicolor

Does anyone have any experience with Xenopeltis unicolor. I was sold an 18 month old male snake 1 month ago. He was coming up for a shed that completed 2 weeks ago. However, he hasn't eaten yet. He is in a 90x36x20cm wood and glass viv at 28 degrees at hot end (25 degrees at night) and 24 degrees at cold end. with a 30 x 20 cm water pool and 3 inch thich aspen bedding changed weekly + 2 hides on a 14 hr light cycle

I was told he eats 2 adult mice (defrosted) but I can't seem to tempt him at all
