Why on earth would you put your hog under so stress for 1-3 minutes???

I think the majority of us believe that hognose do not bite out of aggression or defense, that they only bite due to a feeding response. I would tend to believe that an eating response is far less stressful than an animal feeling the need to bite out of aggression or defense. Doesn't that sound logical to you?

I highly doubt that hognose are under unnatural and potentially unhealthful stress when in eating mode and biting into intended prey (or unintended prey such as a human's finger), that just doesn't sound logical to me. Does it sound logical to you? Do you believe that hognose undergo unhealthy stress every single time they are in feeding mode and bite into intended or unintended prey? After all, that is what you are implying.
