"This place" is a place to discuss issues, offer advice, educate, and anything else you want to make it. I submit that my posts did all of those things. I offered him an option to feeding his babies. I offered him advice on being prepared in the future for any other snakes he might keep. And I think the most important thing I offered was to make him think about what he is or will be doing.

I was not trying to sugar coat anything. People read these forums and think that this is easy. Take a baby snake, buy a frozen pinky, feed it, snake grows and thrives, makes more babies, and the world is fine. Wake up! For crying out loud, the guy did not even know what the copperhead's natural food items might be. How basic is that? How hard is it to read up a little about the natural history of the snake? He had the computer knowledge enough to access this forum so he could ask for your advice. Maybe, you should not sugar coat your response. It is possible that my post will get people to think about this responsibility we take on when we keep critters. We all have to remember that once we put the critter in a cage, that critter becomes totally dependant upon us for survival. The better prepared we are, the better sucess we will have. IMHO
