Exclamation *** Alarming do NOT try this at home ***

I found this image on the net and thought I'd share it with you all and for those of you which are new to keeping snakes and thinking of feeding your snakes live food or leaving live food in over night... I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND IT!



Hope this helps people and saves snakes.

I think most people feed there snake pre-killed prey and already know the consequences of live prey, uneaten.
I know you offering good advice (it is) and its not good for this to happen, that snakes injuries will recover as its common in nature (still not nice though) as large pythons, like rock pythons, split there skin to show the tissue and muscle underneath and still recover after eating Gazzele or something.

this though is worse

This snake was blatantly not surpervised when live fed ! If you ask me looks like the rat could of been in that viv for a few hours ! Idiots.

IF you HAVE to live feed supervise. Enought said

Its a bad thing to happen and should be prevented but again, a snake has great recovery abillities, far beyond this.

it might offend people if you say this is a new morph so dont out of respect, but also dont get aggresive if some one says it, you know there probably having a joke and wouldnt want it to happen

then they would be incredibly stupid to leave live prey unsupervised long enough to do that amount of damage

these pics have been floating for years but as the case with most human errors they are preventable and it is neither the snakes or rats fault - people have the right to feed live prey but had to be none in a humanly way for both snake and prey
