The whole diseasething is a really, really bad idea Derrick. This is a perfect time to address the "pros" of keeping reptiles, to numerous unfamiliar minds. Why poison it disease, especially those that can be contracted by humans. I hope you realize that that rarely happens and can easily be prevented. Ball pythons are CLEAN animals, it's up to us (the caretaker) to keep them that way. I just feel too many negatives will come from a project like that, and the last thing this hobby needs is negativity, agreed??? Your other ideas were much better. Hmmmm....what about live vs. frozen prey. Show the advantages of feeding frozen/thawed. Will the animal "eat it" If he's adapted to live prey items start keeping notes on a "switch over" program to frozen/thawed. Maybe a male/female feeding habits (do males tend to feed more than females????) I dunno, just a few ideas, just keep it positive!! Good Luck!!! Please feel free to contact me for any reason, I'll be more than glad to help you anyway I can.
