You can leave the mouse in the tank for 12 hours maximum. The dead mouse will start decaying as soon as it warms up, so thereís no way you can re-freeze it. Throw it away. Snakes never take food items gone bad, theyíre not scavengers.

With frozen/thawed food, you can use a food dish if youíre worried about getting any kind of spoilable residue onto his substrate. In fact, if your using something that he could swallow along with his food itís a good idea anyway.
