>>Are you going to use a four foot long pith? Or are you going to pin the snake down, restrain it by the neck and then stick your pith in itís brain? From what I recall in basic biology class, the pith is used to keep the animal alive so that when you dissect, you can see the heart still beating. They did say pith and scramble the brains though, didnít they?

Yes, pithing does scramble the brains. That's the point. No brain = no suffering. So what's wrong with it?

>>What's wrong with cooling?

Hey, you're the one who was complaining about the expense of an *injection*. A refrigerator costs a lot more than a pithing tool -- and it's harder to take with you out into the field, too. There's nothing all that wrong with cooling -- but pithing is a lot more portable.
