Toughest little rat pinkie I have ever seen.

Last night I was feeding some of the snakes and when all of the smaller ones had eaten I was left with an extra rat pinke. Since it seemed silly to take the time to freeze one pinkie I just decided to offer him as a snack to one of my larger snakes that would normally eat a rat. So I offered the little guy to an adult female northern pine snake with a killer appetite. She proptly siezed the pinkie and ate it. I know you wont belive this but several minutes had passed and my girlfriend noticed that the snake was in the process of regurgitating the pinke. Like I said, several minutes had passed sine the pinkie was swallowed and when it was regurgitated it was not moving, so I scooped it out of the cage and put it in a paper bag, I was going to throw it out in the morning. The next morning there was a scratching sound coming from the bag that I put the pinkie in. I went and checked and the little bastard was alive. He had been swallowed completely, and several minutes had passed before regurgitation. I know this sounds amazing but I witnessed the eating and the regurgitation in its entirety and somehow he came back up alive. The next morning when I saw the pinkie alive I thought I should do something special dfor him. If he was such a tough little pinke he deserved a real challenge, so I threw him in the monitor cage where he was promptly divided by two hunry savannah monitors. If I find him scratching around in that tank tomorrow, I will build a giant pinkie memmorial or something.
