Personally, I would rather see folks learn their animals, then play the prevent all danger type of husbandry.
As you know, these days, folks take snakes put them in plastic boxes, nothing natural, nothing for the snake, a box and a water bowl. All in the name of safety, I would rather support the snakes in a way, they ARE safe and are not protected safe. This also means using my head, if I have a snake that is compromised, health wise, or behaviorally, then I do not offer it prey that can hurt it.
As I mentioned, and you did not mention, the size and age of the mouse is important. Particularly with compromised captives.
So ONE, learn your snakes is more important for many more reasons then this, two, support your snakes to a position of strength and health, three, use your head, don't put a wolverine with a gophersnake. A simple lesson, my son keeps live mice with his snakes at all times, never has a problem. There are two reasons, the above and two, the most important, the snakes have the ability to get safely away from the prey. They have secure hiding. Like Davids, deep burrowing, crevices etc. Which addresses the will to live and the ability to escape. Did I say, don't put wolverines in the cage, at any time. And yes, as an individual, I hate people forcing me to be safe, when only my danger is envolved. I ride a Harley, in my state, its not required to wear a helmet, its also legal to carry, even hidden. I wear a helmet and do not carry. Thanks David for giving your king the ability to be safe.
