Sorry David but it is you who are mistaken. because they are ectothermic, they are able to maintain consciousness to the point of feeling their blood crystalize. it also goes against the AVMA codes of ethics for a humane euthanasia. being a mammal that has undergone severe hypothermia, the mammals have a better time about it. sure you get realy cold but once you get to the pount where the body stops shivering it is not that bad, you almost feel like yo uare warming up. then you are unconscious and dead shortly after.

>>I just wanted to throw something in here about freezing: I dont know where you got your information from, but freezing reptiles does not amount to a slow painful death. Because they are cold blooded, they would not suffer the way a warm-blooded animal would. Their bodies would simple shut down, they would go to sleep and freeze. I am in no way condoning freezing animals (lol) but was just clarifying that misunderstanding.

"Iím scared of those nasty big-eyed grey aliens, too. I think itís that I donít understand their motivations. I am confident of my ability to out-think, out-con, or if need be, tire-iron-upside-the-head demonic forces, ghosts and goblins, things that go bump in the night, etc. Itís the notion of something that doesnít have any desire to talk to me except via anal probe that freaks me out"
