Feeding outside the cage stresses the snake and may be dangerous for you. Years ago I fed out of the cage and that is when I got bit on a regular basis. For many years now I have fed inside the cage and have not taken a bite in may years. All of my snakes are tame and easy to handle-including reticulated pythons. Think of this: would you rather have a snake have the instinct that it may eat any time it is taken out-or that it will never eat when handled? Snakes are territorial and may strike when the cage is opened no matter where they are fed. Feed inside the cage. When not feeding touch the snake with a snake hook as soon as you open the cage. When feeding don't even let them see a hook. They soon learn that the hook means no food is coming. You and your snakes will be much better off. Bill.
