:Having said that, I think it's unreasonable to blame the frog diet on killing the snake. Parasites yes, but not the frogs themselves.
Ironically I would have said just the opposite. You can have one without the other Mike. I do not think it's unreasonable to blame it indirectly on the amphibian feeders. If he was feeding frogs it was going to have parasites. It would be like making the claim that it wasn't the greasy steaks take gave him a heart attack, it was just the clogged arteries. Unfortunately there is a direct relationship between the foods and the death.
