Why frozen/thawed mice? What's the benefit?

:If the snake is doing well and thriving with the current owner, I would try to as closely as possible approximate the conditions he's living in now...temperature wise, humidity, cage furnishings, cage size, etc. The only thing I would look to change in the near future is to try to get him switched to frozen/thawed mice.

::I am getting a 7 year old Ball Python from a relative. He has owned it for 7 years and is the only owner. He seems to be very docile and friendly. He eats live mice with no problem. He has also had a heat rock for his heat since he was a hatchling. I know very little about snakes but I have always wanted one, and am very excited about this one. I am looking for any tips tricks advise and what to expect from this snake when I move him...

::Please Help
