I think you addressed Aarons problem, by supporting your snake with deep substrate, you allowed the snake to not be attacked from the top. And to protect itself in a natural way. After years and years of pit tag studies in nature, you quickly learn that snakes retreat into holes, then quickly turn around and face you with only the business end. Snakes are kings of "in the ground" on the surface, they are at risk. In captivity, keepers think, they live on the surface. They keep them in open air, no place to hide, which by itself is physically and mentally demanding.
ALso, keepers need to learn what snake insanity is, not accept it as normal. Any animal that does not defend itself is INSANE. Try to address that insanity, and not support it. I hope folks attack this paragraph. Best wishes and good job.

p.s. Aaron, you know I like your approach and respect you. I hope you take your intellect and think about this. The real problem, not preventing the results from captive insanity. a snake allowing itself to be chewed to death(piss poor method of killing) is not normal, its insane.
