yea, put dry ice in a closed container it will eventually blow up... as the dry ice (which is jsut solid CO2) sublimes, the gaseous CO2 has a MUCH higer volume than as a solid... so there is so much pressure that the container would explode..

i use the cervical break the neck thing.. hah i forget what its called.. yea just take a screw driver and hold the mouse/rat down by the next and pull hard on the tail... they should twitch a little bit and be dead.. but be careful... ive done that, have had the mouse twitch.. tossed it in my snakes cage assuming it was dead... in a few minutes i heard the mouse screaming as my python constricted it.. so just make sure the thing is dead.. luckily my snake was hungry :)
