Do you need to buy a new young snake that is advertised as having "six consecutive strike feeds" etc? or does it not matter?

I'm new to all this so please forgive me if this is a dumb question.

i wouldnt buy any snake without seeing a feeding record. but then it could have been marked as fed but not. best thing is see snake in person check for signs of burns underweight illness. hope this helps
