that viv looks manky as f*ck, there's another one onthere called suriname "madusa" boa stricking rat, its a lovely set up and snake, but why do people have to be [email protected] to animals, even if they are going to be fed to a snake, the bloke was holding the rat by its tail and flicking the rat to wind it up, i hope the rat bites the [email protected]@rd next time.
Graz I know its nature and probably a more healthy meal to feed live but you need to put a little warning in the title. My kids do browse this site most areas apart from Off Topic. My son woudnt mind it but my daughter would get really annoyed after telling her all food fed to snakes are born dead. .
i personally dont feed live BUT....... i think i would feed live if it was the last resort u know if my snakes were not feeding!!! as for showing it on video i think this is just the show off attitude!!! yes we all know they do this is in the wild BUT wat people dont remember is "the snakes u own are not wild and probably never have been!! i choose not to watch live feeds taking place not because i hate the screems etc but because i worry about the snake gettin damaged in the process.
Techincally it isnt against the law.. it MAY however be construde as animal cruelty in which case you could be prosecuted by the RSPCA under our animal welfare legislation. They have openly said they will attempt to prosecute any herper caught live feeding.
There is no law *as such* against live feeding.
