good fat rats and mice....no exercise...no movement at all in some cases...small cages....and yes even the temp miht be off....

why would a rodent diet NOT screw up all captive snakes?...

....indigos...easterns....big badazz snakes...they eat alot...get really heavy...they defecate like 200 times a day if you feed them....pounds at a time....(yes you get it...I'm exagerating)....

snake diet would give them the nutrients they need better than rodents....and they would have to eat alot less times per year than all mice or rats....so if fed snakes and goven ALOT of room they would glow and be at a real healthy weight....

I love easterns...friend had one...got huge really fast....

.....(other friend had king cobras....fed them rats...but cut feed times in half....they grew good and looked good....like a good meal every 2 weeks...not 6 small rats a week....like they wanted)....
