 First snake

i bought my first ever snake on monday which is a hognose. he or she is only a baby,id say 10 inches long. ive had other reptiles mainly geckos but this is new to me. ive tried him on pinkies on thursday and he refused. is it to soon to feed him cos hes settling in. i even split the brain like id read on other sites but to no avail. am i worried over nothing. i think patience is the key. my temps are right and he is active. any thoughts people. cheers. im gonna try again on saturday.

Western - Eastern or Mex.
They are frog-toad eaters in the wild, Easterners can be a little harder to get started on mice than Westerns and Mex., also many snake go off feed in the Winter months .
Try putting the pinkie in a hide box where its dark and then putting the snake in there giving the Hoggie
quiet & time, if he still does not take try again in about seven days.
