DO NOT EVER FEED LIVE FOOD! EVER!!! Even if you have a finicky snake, don't EVER give it anything but pre-killed. Believe me, your snake will learn. The only thing stopping you is your own laziness, or your overgrown ego from the "power trip" you get.Mice and rats are highly intelligent, complex animals that feel just as much pain and suffering as we do. If you can't sympathize with being tortured, slowly eaten alive over a long period of time, enduring pain and mind-boggling terror, then you shouldn't just be a pet owner, you should be behind bars of a mental ward.I personally advise not keeping snakes at all. They aren't domesticated, they never will be. They're cool, they're pretty, they're neat, but they aren't companions. Because of this, they will be happier in the wild, and you could choose a pet that will actually enjoy your company rather than just tolerate it.
My ball python won't eat frozen rat actually she won't even eat a live rat if the rat is not running around. If the rat just stay still my snake will look at it n won't attack her
Feeding live animals to snakes is illegal in the UK. And I can tell you this, every rat has an individual personality, like a dog, and to feed one alive to a snake falls in the same category as bear baiting and cock fights. No reason or justification for feeding live baits.
Doug conners right, every rat does have an individual personality I know this, I breed them. Does not mean u cant or shouldnt feed live, if your snake feeds live always feed live, you see what doug dosnt know is how the gas the rats that you do by dead, so sir with all do respect shut your fucking mouth on a subject you know nothing about, my ball python kills an adult rat in under 1 min. And that rat lived a good life I ensure this, instead of being caged neglected and gassed.
Wat kind of snake is that in the cage at 0:30
Feeding live is fine as long as you stay and monitor the whole thing. Remove the prey if the snake doesn't take it within half an hour or if the snake seems stressed, and be ready with a pencil or forceps; if the mouse/rat starts biting, put the pencil by its mouth so it will bite that instead of the snake.
Only an inexperienced snake owner would leave live bait in the enclosure with the snake. Other than that if the snake eats live, do live.
Its ok to feed live mouse but rats I don't know. On my video I will tell people to stop posting poor live cute dumbo and fancy eaten by snake cause its cruel. Its inappropriate and stupid idea to kill intelligent animal in the planet. They will be reported on their vids.
The transition from keeping pet rats to feeding rats to snakes happen to quickly...
I fed my hog island boa 3 mice and he isn't even 2 1/2 feet yet but he still seems hungry do I feed him more ?
"This poor guys goin get damaged", yer the rats goin get killed
don't feed them live food! it can harm them!
My BP will eat nothing but live food. Thankfully he has good takedown skills. And I feed him in his tank with no problems at all.
I prefer Live over dead! Just put the food in a zip lock back to knock it out...
Holy hell these bitches are crazy
They aren't promoting. They are basically helping people with their pets. It just happens to be snakes now.
thats funny right? ._. *ironic*
Easy answer: you don't feed then live.
best ways to avoid feeding live bait: acquire some dead bait, (if you need to kill a live animal kill it as humanely as possible) heat it up to around 30oC, get some tongs and jiggle the bait around in the cage.( this makes the snake believe it's alive, and it eats easier.)
First they're promoting how to keep a rat, now yet they're teaching you how to feed a rat to a snake. What just happened?
NEVER feed your snake where it lives! Everytime u open the lid it thinks feeding time. I used a rubbermade storage bin. I handled my snakes daily. Mind u I had a 6 ft and 8 ft boa. but never feed where they live... Bad Idea in my eyes if u want to handel your pet snake!
And always ALWAYS move snakes to a seperate tank for feeding. If you don't them when you go to pick it up it might bite your hand thinking it is going to be fed.
