In Reply to: Re: Feeding... posted by BILLY on March 17, 2003 at 00:57:45:


:I am thawing some frozen mice and rats now as I type this. I guess this means I prefer feeding my snakes frozen/thawed. My snakes have always done extremely well with this and for convenience's sake, it is easier for me. In about 35 minutes, I have thawed out, dried off, and fed all my snakes.

:A friend of mine once had a yellow anaconda that had its eyes chewed out by a live rat.

:Some like to feed live just to see the snake constrict and kill the prey. Heck, most of my snakes still go nuts even when feeding thawed.

:Billy


my snakes are so used to f/t that they no longer know the difference and will yank a thawed rat thru a slight opening like nobody's business. lol. not to mention the considerable savings of feeding f/t [about 66% cheaper] and the not having to go out, burn a quarter tank looking to buy live on a constant basis. its just common cents...;-0
