:I live in an area where there are a lot of cotton tail rabbits. I have all the means to hunt them and probably will for myself but I was curious if they are ok for snake food? I have heard that if you freeze something like that for 2+ weeks it kills any parasites is this true? I dont want to risk the snakes health but as far as price goes it would be great. Just thought I would ask :)


I personally wouldn't risk it just because. I am conservative with that sort of thing I guess. I asked the old, freezing kills parasites thing of my vets and the consensus was that it will kill some but it would have to be months in 0 degrees to kill all. Figure these are bugs that live through winters...and in upstate NY that is not a couple of frosts and a month of ground freeze. Just thoughts.
