    As its finishing the mouse and still opening its mouth shove the head of a rat in on the next mouth open. If that doesn't work and they spit it out or refuse it,.. this might sound weird but it works,.. Sew with cotton a rats head to the tail end of a mouse. 2 or 3 of these and they are away.

    I think scenting would work. But I'm curious about Cement's method? Does the cotton just dissolve in the python?

    You could always tie the rats head on with a loop of rat intestine & then post a photo.
