I have purchsed frozen rats/mice and noticed after feeding them a couple of snakes had regurged. Also a good many snakes have had some real obscene stools(green balls, slimy cocoon sacks and of course diareha)PU! When the rats were defrosted the hair flaked off their stomach easily and the skin was stained brown and green. They also smell bad in the stomach region. I know I shouldn't feed these again but I want to know if anyone has ever experienced this and why the smell and the hair comes off? Thanks.
