But your crossing species lines here, like saying a python is just another kind of boa.
Physiology of one species is not identical to the physiology of another.
Apples and oranges. both are fruit, both bear seeds, both grow on trees, both are round, then the similarity stops.
Care of one animal is not going to be absolutely the same as care for another (similar) species.
and if I recall correctly, you were the one who challenged me first, not the other way around.
If you don't mind me asking, how exactly is it better for any animal to defy natures plan and feed them food items that their internal physiology was not specifically "engineered for"???
That concept puzzles me to no end.
I assure you this, when my Sav roams free on my property, Mice are NOT what he is hunting for, not once have I ever witnessed him actively seek out a mouse.
He digs in the dirt for worms, looks under rocks in the creek for crayfish, and peels bark off logs looking for grubs and beetles.
So please tell me the logic behind forcing this animal to consume something that is not what nature intended him to eat??
And please don't insult my intelligence with "so and so said"
Present me with scientific proof. Then I will graciously eat humble pie, and apologize.
The orange stain on his snout is from large orange slugs, a favourite food item, He goes nuts over them...
Does this animal look like he's hunting for mice??
