Finally, why do you think nature is so perfect? Humans certainly have benefited by creating habitats very very different from our natural conditions. Do you think our current diets are anything like what our ancestors ate? Dogs and cats are good examples of animals that have been extremely far removed from their ancestors via the domestication process. How about 50 generations of Siberian fox breeding resulting in domesticated individuals which eat almost exclusively wet dog food... What I am getting at is the genetics that best allow animals to thrive in their environment do not necessarily indicate nature is place BEST suited for their genetics. We should be trying to do better than nature at SUPPORTING our animals not restricting them based on flawed perceptions of nature and what it intends. There is a big picture there that nobody on Earth is smart enough to see all at once so all we can do is acknowledge what is PROVEN.

Savs can do well on inverts and/or rodents as long as everything else is right. Time and time again this discussion creeps up and assuming nobody is telling lies that is the ONLY reasonable conclusion to draw, either works as long as you support the animal. There is no perfect right answer here, but if its working use it. Your horrible logic and lack of understanding does not mean your diet is bad, your reasoning for your diet is bad.

1 1=2 because it has been defined as such.
If you say 1 1=2 because the earth is round it does not make 1 1 any less 2 but it does make you an idiot. (This is an ambiguous "you" not directed at any person).
