I'm the ugliest lady you'd ever want to see.
That aside, it turned into a thread about pushers when you advocated power feeding your snakes and breeding them too early. We know what HUSBANDRY means, and we all now no that you don't practice it properly. We also know what METABOLISM is and now know that you manipulate it in your snakes.
We chose to keep and breed healthy snakes, you like to powerfeed and overbreed yours. Like you said, the choice is ours, we choose to do what's best for the snake.
Asking a question of what a yearling corn snake should eat was best answered by those who take care of their snakes in a sensible and healthy matter.
The question wasn't "What kind of prey items can I give my grossly over-fed cornsnake when it gets to a year old, even if I have grossly shortened its life span by breeding it at 9 months old"
Most breeders wait until the snake is at least 3 to 4 years old. Breeding one at 9 months is absolutely disgusting.
